The extraordinary debut novel that became a modern classic

Born mute, speaking only in sign, Edgar Sawtelle leads anidyllic life with his parents on their farm in remote northern Wisconsin. Forgenerations the Sawtelles have raised and trained a fictional breed of dogwhose remarkable gift for companionship is epitomized by Almondine, Edgar'slifelong friend and ally. Edgar seems poised to carry on his family'straditions, but when catastrophe strikes, he finds his once-peaceful homeengulfed in turmoil.

Forced to flee into the vast wilderness lying beyond the Sawtellefarm, Edgar comes of age in the wild, fighting for his survival and that of thethree yearling dogs who accompany him, until the day he is forced to choosebetween leaving forever or returning home to confront the mysteries he has leftunsolved.

Filled with breathtaking scenes-the elemental north woods,the sweep of seasons, an iconic American barn, a fateful vision rendered in thefalling rain-The Story of Edgar Sawtelle is a meditation on the limits oflanguage and what lies beyond, a brilliantly inventive retelling of an ancientstory, and an epic tale of devotion, betrayal, and courage in the Americanheartland.
