From "the most honest writer in America" comes this witty, wise, no-holds-barred memoir about man's best friends-canine and cold, hard steel (Jim Harrison, author of Dead Man's Float). John Graves has been praised by fellow authors as "the best-loved writer in Texas" (Rick Bass) and "invaluable" (Larry McMurtry). Now, the finest wordsmith from the Lone Star state shares his thoughts on two great American traditions, with a pair of memoirs on dogs and guns. In Blue and Some Other Dogs, Graves meditates on the life of his favorite faithful companion, his Basque-Australian sheepdog, Blue. In Guns of a Lifetime, he nostalgically recounts the firearms he's owned throughout his lifetime, starting with his collection's humble first entry: a "rusted and cylinderless" revolver. In both tales, he weaves an honest and unapologetic view of the American South and the men and women who call it home Poignant and pointed, this delightful duet cements Graves's position as "one of the best" writers in the U.S. of A. (Jim Harrison).
