KIRKUS REVIEW

This sequel to Bristle Face is alive with colorful characters and packed with rich comical dialogue. After Bristle Face disappears, Jase, a back-country boy living at the turn of the twentieth century, ""adopts"" his old fox dog's brother. The boy's odd ball experiences, his close friendship with old Emory, a fox dog enthusiast, and Lute's bizarre, slow-moving romance with buxom Pansy, form a rare book. Mr. Ball looks at the lazy country folk with insight and records what he ""sees"" in a lucid, moving style.
