Angus was born at Pollard's Combe, a farm in Devon, on a dark and stormy night, from whence he was removed from his mother and brother by a tall booming-voiced American man and his fluttery-fingered wife. Soon he finds himself on a swift ride to Cornwall, then in the stacked-box city of London, then in a cargo hold of a steel bird en route to Brooklyn, and finally, at Wickerby, the site of Siebert's highly praised first book. It is there, in the wild woods of southern Canada, that Angus's irrepressible zeal for experience meets its match.Angus's brief autobiography gives us a wry, funny, philosophical dog's-eye view of life and death. At once poetic, canine, and unsentimental, Angus is a brilliant feat of the imagination that enacts our ambiguous relationship to other species -- and takes us into the multisensory world of a brave, lively, unforgettable young dog.
