about

In the rugged bush of northern Ontario, a small bush plane crashes.
On board is a ten-year old boy and a pilot.
In the early nineteen-sixties the only one capable of finding the crash site is Haggard and his blood-hound, Wojo.
Hag enjoyed the good life of living in the wilderness until events leading up to the crash and his campion hampered the search.
Wojo has shown signs of rabies after a dog-fight with a lost German Shepard.
Is it too late when Hag discovers that his hound might have infected the scratch on his arm?
There in the middle of nowhere a sick man and the lost boy develop a bond that is stronger then life its self.
Survival is of the utmost importance when there is a lifetime of growing up ahead for young Bat.
Adventures are bigger than the wilderness of Northern Ontario.

Quotes:
A powerful story, I was shocked by the ending. As heartfelt as the movie, 'Old Yeller'.

I cried for the boy, I cried for the dog and I cried for Hag.

A great story idea, it could have really happened, especially here in Northern Ontario.This is truly a Canadian story.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book ought to be a movie! “Executor Of Mercy” is an intricate ‘true to life’ novel. The adventure takes place in the 1960’s in the wilderness of Northern Ontario. A small bush plane crashes in the bush leaving the Native pilot dying and a 10 year old passenger, to adapt and survive in the wilderness. The story intertwines with both new and seasoned rescuers who must also come to terms with their own mortality and personal challenges. The characters face the devastating madness of rabies, bush fever, mortality, and personal challenges. The cover maybe humble, but this novel is a definite ‘page turner’. The story is well written, has good character development and flows at an enjoyable pace. The author “Edmond J. Alcid”, a long time resident of Northern Ontario, demonstrates his talent for character and plot development, seemingly so relatable that the reader may think that the novel is based on a true story. It would make a fabulous movie. I would highly recommend this book to schools and adults alike.
