About the Edition

When his older brother leaves the family farm in order to join the army in 1943, ten-year-old Maury remains behind to deal with his angry father and to care for Ben's injured puppy. Set in World War II Georgia, this is the story of 10-year-old Maury & the injured black dog he finds in the woods. A howl in the woods on a cold winter day changes Maury Painter's life. Tangled within the thorny vines a dog lies whimpering. It's 1943, and times are tough and lean on his family's Georgia farm. As Maury struggles to fill the place of his absent brother, who's off fighting in the war, he is determined to keep the dog he calls Mack. Mack is there for him, steadfast and true. But his father insists that the dog is just another mouth to feed ... Brad Strickland has been hailed by critics for his spine-tingling books in the John Bellairs series. Now this talented author reaches into his Georgia roots to craft a moving story about a spirited boy whose devotion to a beloved pet gives him the courage he needs to make his own way.
