The Dog Who Came to Stay: A Memoir

A Memoir


During a fierce snowstorm, an abandoned and hungry animal howls at the back door of nature writer Hal Borland’s farmhouse, announcing the beginning of a transformational friendship
Hal Borland and his wife Barbara have recently moved onto a hundred-acre farm in northwest Connecticut, where both hope to write and live in harmony with nature. From his New England home, Borland travels the country searching for material for his New York Times “outdoor editorials”—but soon nature comes searching for him, in the form of a miserable, half-starved, deeply trusting, black-and-white foxhound mutt that wanders onto the farm during a blizzard. The dog, Pat, becomes a member of the family and teaches Borland that, often, our most immediate connection to the natural world is through the animals we live with.
