Abandoned as a baby amid a litter of puppies, Brind grows up to serve as kennel boy on a fourteenth-century English estate. Brind and the hounds accompany the master to France to fight in the Hundred Years War. In the Battle of Crecy, Brind's beloved pack is slaughtered by the French, and only Brind's favored Glaive survives. As he endeavors to return with Glaive to England, Brind learns that men are less dependable than dogs. Narrator Cornelius Garrett does justice to this unique, award-winning novel. With strong characters and a well-paced narration, Garrett leads the listener through Brind's travails in the incomprehensible world of men, in which chivalry and honor are strangely defined.
