The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
by David Wroblewski

I really got into this book and find it's one of those you really can't put down. The Sawtelle dogs are a foundation and backdrop for the story of Edgar, his family, and the mysteries surrounding the breed of dog, the family homestead, and Edgar's father. It'll take a long time to get over this one. 11/08
