Maury and Mack ...

A howl in the woods on a cold winter day changes Maury Painter’s life. Tangled within the thorny blackberry vines, a dog lies shivering and whimpering. He’s so thin, he nothing but skin and bones. So weak, Maury has to carry him.

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. By his side. Steadfast and true. But his father insists that the dog is just another mouth to feed.

Brad Strickland drew on his own memories of a Georgia childhood to creat this extraordinary story about a spirited boy whose devotion to a beloved pet gives him the courage he needs to make his own way.
