Beautifully written and elegantly paced, The Story of Edgar
Sawtelle is a coming-of-age novel about the power of the
land and the past to shape our lives. It is a riveting tale of
retribution, inhabited by empathic animals, prophetic dreams,
second sight, and vengeful ghosts.
Born mute, Edgar Sawtelle feels separate from the people around him
but is able to establish profound bonds with the animals who share
his home and his name: his family raises a fictional breed of
exceptionally perceptive and affable dogs. Soon after his father''s
sudden death, Edgar is stunned to learn that his mother has already
moved on as his uncle Claude quickly becomes part of their lives.
Reeling from the sudden changes to his quiet existence, Edgar flees
into the forests surrounding his Wisconsin home accompanied by
three dogs. Soon he is caught in a struggle for survival - the only
thing that will prepare him for his return home.
