The Dog

This is the story of a dog, pure and simple. A puppy whose author knows dogs and life in the cold north of Sweden intimately, and who is able to make us feel present in it. The tale is also illustrated with touching woodcuts.

Kerstin Ekman, one of Sweden’s most highly-esteemed living writers, writes  with great love and admiration of a full year in Northern Sweden during which a puppy is separate from both his master and his mother but manages to survive in the wild.
