Henrietta Branford's gripping novel depicts the tumult and tragedy of the Peasants' Revolt in England through the eyes, ears, and nose of a dog. "I am not, nor ever will be, truly wild. Because I have known fire, bed, and bone. Because I am a hunting dog, a dog who must work with a man."..So says the old hunting dog who narrates this unforgettable tale. Living with poor but kindly Rufus and Comfort and their children, she has all a dog could ask for--fire, bed, and bone. But this is 1381 and unrest is spreading like a plague among the peasants of England, who are tired of the hardship and injustice they suffer at the hands of oppressive landlords. Rebellion is in the air, and life for man--and dog--is about to change forever...
