Hell Hound

 

Ken Greenhall, Hell Hound (Zebra: 1977).

The emotionally dark characters and the exploration of courage, trust, and strength make this story much more sophisticated than one might expect based on the cover! I’m still trying to formulate what this strange and violent coming-of-age story is all about. The interesting and complicated relationship between the humans and the dog Baxter allows for focus on the differences, if any, between human nature and beastly nature. Have you read this haunting book?
