A Wolf in God’s Country is the story of Dub, a little white haired country boy, who is reaching for manhood. Fettered by a lack of boyhood friends, he must fill the void in his life with something. What better to fill that void, than the companionship of the creatures of nature? The story chronicles their exciting and sometimes dangerous adventures.
Since there were no dams on the Sabine River, the danger of repeated flooding prevented the building of permanent structures such as homes. This absence of human habitat with its peace and quiet was a sanctuary to any seeking refuge. The plentiful supply of wild game, nuts, fruits and vegetables made survival a simple thing. Good potable water was readily available in every hollow. To the soul of a kid who loved silent places, the river bottom took on the appearance of being God's country.
In time, the coming of the lumber industry, with its massive logging operations changed the landscape forever. Little river rat kids and their playmates were trampled by collective feet in a rush to riches. With little of that world now remaining, the adventures of Dub, his dog Ring and his horse Honey Gal are remembrances of a time long past—a simple time of childhood treasures and adventure.
This is a heartwarming story of a red blooded American boy and his childhood with Honey Gal & Ring by his side.
Come with me down memory lane and let’s enjoy a brief return to an era long past, of simpler times and simple pleasures.
