New York Times bestselling author Jim Harrison is oneof America's most beloved writers, and of all his creations, Brown Dog-a bawdy,reckless, down-on-his-luck Michigan Indian-has earned cult status with readersin the more than two decades since his first appearance. For the first time, BrownDog gathers all the Brown Dog novellas, including one never before published,into one volume-the ideal introduction (or reintroduction) to Harrison'sirresistible Everyman.
In these novellas, BD rescues the preserved body of an Indianfrom Lake Superior's cold waters; overindulges in food, drink, and women whilejust scraping by in Michigan's Upper Peninsula; wanders Los Angeles in searchof an ersatz Native activist who stole his bearskin; adopts two Nativechildren; and flees the authorities then returns across the Canadian borderaboard an Indian rock band's tour bus. The collection culminates with "He Dog," never before published, whichfinds BD marginally employed and still looking for love (or sometimes just afew beers and a roll in the hay) as he goes on a road trip from Michigan toMontana and back, arriving home to the prospect of family stability, and,perhaps, a chance at redemption.
Brown Dog underscoresHarrison's place as one of America's most irrepressible writers and one of thefinest practitioners of the novella form.
