Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

In Dog Days, Jon Katz, the squire of Bedlam Farm, allows us to live our dreams of leaving the city for the country, and shares the unpredictable adventure of farm life. The border collies, the sheep, the chickens, the cat, the ram, and one surprisingly sociable steer named Elvis all contribute to the hum (and occasional roar) of Bedlam. On timeless summer days and in punishing winter storms, Katz continues his meditation on what animals can selflessly teach us-and what we in turn owe to them. With good neighbors, a beautiful landscape, and tales of true love thrown in, Dog Days gives us not only marvelous animal stories but a rich portrait of the harmonious world that is Bedlam Farm.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Anyone who has ever loved an animal, who owns a farm or even dreams of it, will read Dog Days with appreciation and a cathartic lump in his or her throat.” Washington Post
“A sweet, funny memoir about the chaos on his animal-friendly farm in upstate New York.” Chicago Tribune
“Anyone who loves animals or country life, but maybe can’t have a pet or actually live in the country, will find Katz a perfect armchair companion.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Dog Days invites listeners to put aside urban cacophony for hard-won rural harmony. One can’t imagine a better narrator for the stories of life on Katz’s farm in upstate New York than Stechschulte. His down-home gravelly voice enfolds listeners in a genial embrace.” AudioFile
“Katz…honestly and humbly confesses what he has learned from these animals and the local people who have become a part of his life and have shaped his emerging self. A vivid…beautiful tale, poetically told.” Library Journal
“An appealing text showing off an author who’s found his perfect genre. Readers can only how these appealing and thoughtful dispatches will continue.” Kirkus Reviews
