Publisher Comments:

Sam Peek's children are worried. Since that "saddest day" when Cora, his beloved wife of fifty-seven good years, died, no one knows how he will survive. How can this elderly man live alone on his farm? How can he keep driving his dilapidated truck down to the fields to care for his few rows of pecan trees? And when Sam begins telling his children about a dog as white as the pure driven snow — that seems invisible to everyone but him — his children think that grief and old age have finally taken their toll.

But whether the dog is real or not, Sam Peek — "one of the smartest men in the South when it comes to trees" — outsmarts them all. Sam and the White Dog will dance from the pages of this bittersweet novel and into your heart, as they share the mystery of life, and begin together a warm and moving final rite of passage.

Winner of the Southeastern Library Association's Outstanding Author Award.

Synopsis:

This brilliantly realized novel of life, loss, mystery and hope has garnered exceptional critical praise. An old man (whose wife of 57 years has died) and his mythic white dog teach a lasting lesson in love, hope and the importance of believing in yourself to his worried child.
