Lonesome: Memoirs of a Wilderness Dog: This is a story that will make readers laugh and cry. It is told by Lonesome, the author's dog, and her observations of life in the wilds reveal a dog with great character, charm – and attitude.
Named for her first home, remote Lonesome Lake in British Columbia's Tweedsmuir Park, Lonesome was a first-rate companion :obedient, mannerly, brave and occasionally cynical. She did not share her human's love of the wilderness, and wore a martyred expression for most of her life. She would have much preferred a life in the suburbs, “with nice safe walks in the park and a cozy bed inside the house.”
But Lonesome writes, “any dog worth her Milk-Bones must accept her lot in life – fording rivers, swimming lakes, camping out in bitter weather and , worst of all, bears. Yes, bears. It's a wonder I am still around to tell this tale.”
