Dog Days: Dispatches from Bedlam Farm
Jon Katz is one of America's best-loved writers about animals, a chronicler of rural life to rival James Herriot.
Here 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. From little Jesus, the newborn donkey who becomes the farm mascot, to the surprisingly sociable steer Elvis and his enormous sweetheart, Luna, the creatures at Bedlam Farm find new ways to challenge Katz, who writes, "The perfect life is like the perfect dog: Neither exists. And joy is a fraction of the experience of owning a farm."
