To Dance with the White Dog

On the 25th anniversary of its first publication, here is the definitive edition of the book Archbishop Desmond Tutu called a hauntingly beautiful story about love, family, and relationships, now with a new preface from the author. Sam Peeks beloved wife of fifty-seven years, Cora, has died. His children are anxious. No one knows how Sam will survive. How can this elderly man live alone? How can he run a farm? How can he keep driving his dilapidated truck down to the fields where he cares for a few rows of pecan trees? When Sam begins telling his children about a dog that is white as a fresh-fallen snow but who is invisible to everyone else, well, his children are sure that grief and old age have finally overcome their father. But whether the dog is real or not, Sam Peek, one of the smartest men in the South when it comes to trees, outsmarts everyone. Sam and the White Dog dance from the pages of this bittersweet novel and straight into the readers heart as the two share the mystery of life and begin together a warm and moving final rite of passage as life draws to a close.
