Overview

Calling all dog lovers! Join Kenny Salwey as he remembers the dogs who have shared his life in the backwater swamp along the Upper Mississippi River. From his earliest memories of Brownie, Rover, and Pepper, who helped with chores and hunting trips in the countryside where he grew up, to his faithful black labs Joey and Spider, Kenny recalls the much-loved dogs who enriched his many years hunting, fishing, and just living along the river. These humorous, heartfelt stories will touch anyone who has experienced the companionship of man's best friend.

Over the course of my life, I have had many animal friends, but none can compare in terms of companionship, lovingness, faithfulness, and friendship to the noble dog.

Meet the Author

Kenny Salwey is the last of a breed of men whose lifestyle has all but disappeared in this fast-paced, high-tech digital world. For thirty years, this weathered woodsman eked out a living on the Mississippi River, running a trapline, hiring out as a river guide, digging and selling roots and herbs, and eating the food he hunted and fished. Today, Salwey is a master storyteller, environmental educator, keynote speaker, nature writer, and advocate for the Upper Mississippi River. He has presented his true-life adventures and words of natural world wisdom to both adult and young audiences across the Upper Midwest. By sharing his hard-learned experiences, his respect for the Mississippi River, and his love of the natural world, Salwey hopes to inspire his audiences to protect this precious and fragile ecosystem.
