For generations, Edgar’s family has raised and trained a special breed of dog in the northern woods of Wisconsin. The Sawtelles love and understand these animals. In fact, Edgar, who has never spoken, has always been able to easily communicate with his canine friends; and together, they see and hear everything. When his uncle fatally betrays his father, Edgar knows the truth—but no one will hear him. This achingly beautiful retelling of a Shakespearean tragedy is sure to move and haunt you.
