    Born mute, speaking only in sign, Edgar Sawtelle leads an idyllic life with his parents and an unusual breed of dogs on their farm in remote northern Wisconsin. But when tragedy strikes the Sawtelle family, Edgar flees to the surrounding wilderness. He comes of age in the wild, fighting for his survival and that of the three yearling dogs who follow him.

    Overall

    I consider myself well-read and can easily become absorbed in a story, but I really struggled all the way through this book. Some passages were absolutely beautiful and others were far too drawn out. I was VERY disappointed in the ending. I won't spoil the story for anyone but I felt cheated when I read the last few sentences. I stuck with the story all this time for that ending? Reminded me a bit of Cormac McCarthy in some places, but at least Mr. McCarthy gives an ending you can accept even if you don't necessarily like it. I will not recommend this book to a friend, even with its very detailed character development and often beautiful imagery.
