Synopses & Reviews

The rib-thin, black-and-white rabbit hound turned up at Hal Borlands' Connecticut farm one Christmas night in the middle of a nasty winter storm. Pat, as the dog came to be known, and his raffish traveling companion, a young pup, "were even more unwelcome than the weather," but after a few preliminaries, both settled in as members of the Borland household. The pup eventually found a home elsewhere, but Pat became Hal Borland's true companion and a local legend, the terror of woodchucks for miles around.

With his keen sensitivity to the natural world, Borland here recounts, with deep affection and wonder, how a man and his dog can form a magical and unforgettable partnership.


A classic contemporary memoir of one man's long and affectionate relationship with a special dog.

About the Author

HAL BORLAND (1900-1978) was the author of many works of fiction and nonfiction, most of which draw on his understanding of country life and the natural world. He was perhaps best-known for his nature essays in The New York Times.
