Influenced by survival lessons from the natural world, Cleopatra Mathis' 'Book of Dog' traces a harrowing personal journey from hard endings--a divorce, the death of a beloved dog--to the fierce arrival of acceptance and change. All manner of life thrives in these pages-plovers, foxes, the companionable beetle on the bedpost, and the coyotes just beyond her back door. This poet's discerning eye, focused on the stringent truth of what she sees around her, aims outward and refuses the sentimental. Throughout the search, she is guided by the unbounded faithfulness and wisdom of her noble and comic companions on the path.
