The spell of the wild country lies over these three rare stories by a master craftsman in portraying the creatures and moods of the wilderness. The tales are simple ones, with little violent action; they are, nevertheless, suspenseful and deeply moving in their presentations of three distrustful animals who had good reasons for fearing and even hating all men, and of the patient ways of three human beings who felt that this friendship was worth working for and proving.
One dog was relentlessly pursued as a killer wolf. The other was purposely deserted far from his home. The untamed black horse fastens his great teeth on the arm of the crippled cowhand trying to rescue him for a bog — but does not clamp them!--Goodreads.com. [Suggest a different description.]
