In Dog Days, Jon Katz, the squire of Bedlam Farm, allows us to live our dreams of leaving the city for the country, and shares the unpredictable adventure of farm life. The border collies, the sheep, the chickens, the cat, the ram, and one surprisingly sociable steer named Elvis all contribute to the hum (and occasional roar) of Bedlam. On timeless summer days and in punishing winter storms, Katz continues his meditation on what animals can selflessly teach us-and what we in turn owe to them. With good neighbors, a beautiful landscape, and tales of true love thrown in, Dog Days gives us not only marvelous animal stories but a rich portrait of the harmonious world that is Bedlam Farm.

Professional reviews

"With a folksy tone, Tom Stechschulte brings to Katz's Bedlam Farm series a quality of genuine Americana, the kind that doesn't get much attention these days. Despite the hard work and the constant diligence a farm requires, DOG DAYS invites listeners to put aside urban cacophony for hard-won rural harmony. One can't imagine a better narrator for the stories of life on Katz's farm in upstate New York than Stechschulte. His down-home gravelly voice enfolds listeners in a genial embrace. Stechschulte relates Katz's efforts to deal with cows, donkeys, chickens, a rooster, a cat, four dogs, and a flock of sheep, frequently with the excellent help of local experts and the constant support of his wife, Paula, who visits on weekends.
