jon clinch's blue christmas


"Into the riverman's life the dog enters like a thing freely given.

The man awakens in his frozen bed one morning and he stirs up the fire from weary embers and he steps out onto the porch all swept about with snow to assess the dawn, and from down along the riverside the thing barks up at him as if she has him treed."
