In hard times Jody Baxter's harsh world allows him one happiness, his fawn, Flag. Then brutal reality requires that he kill what he cherishes. Peter Strauss narrates the story, which consists of the conversations and thoughts of Jody and his father, Penny. Strauss's empathy with Penny brings his character to life; Penny's wise and determined character is clarified through Strauss's strong, steady reading. His clear, mellow voice aptly portrays the kindness inside the steel-hard toughness necessary for survival. In contrast, Strauss also captures Jody's youthful faltering and uncertainty. An excellent, thought-provoking reading of a classic. P.A.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 96]
