Of all Jim Harrison's creations, Brown Dog--a bawdy, reckless, down-on-his-luck Michigan Indian--has earned cult status with readers in the more than two decades since his first appearance. For the first time, Brown Dog gathers all the Brown Dog novellas, including one never before published, into one volume. In these novellas, BD rescues the preserved body of an Indian from Lake Superior's cold waters; overindulges in food, drink, and women while just scraping by in Michigan's Upper Peninsula; wanders Los Angeles in search of an ersatz Native activist who stole his bearskin; adopts two Native children; and flees the authorities then returns across the Canadian border aboard an Indian rock band's tour bus. The collection culminates with "He Dog," never before published, which finds BD marginally employed and still looking for love (or sometimes just a few beers and a roll in the hay) as he goes on a road trip from Michigan to Montana and back, arriving home to the prospect of family stability, and, perhaps, a chance at redemption.

"As author Jim Harrison's followers know, Michigan's Upper Peninsula has long been home to Brown Dog, a partly Native American man who lives more or less off the grid, desires mostly sex and booze, and subsists on odd jobs and handouts. Harrison has been publishing stories featuring Brown Dog since 1990; this anthology collects all those previously published and adds one new story, making this a good place for newcomers to start and faithful fans to get comfortable with "one of literature's great characters" (Publishers Weekly)."
