Brown Dog is a bawdy, reckless, down-on-his-luck Michigan Indian. Work is something to do when he needs money, taking time away from the pleasures of fishing. Of course, this means that Brown Dog is never far from catastrophe, searching for an answer to the riddle of family ... and perhaps, a chance at redemption.
"Of all [Jim Harrison's] creations, Brown Dog has earned cult status with readers in the more than two decades since his first appearance, scrambling to stay out of jail after his salvage-diving operation uncovers the frozen body of an Indian man in the waters of Lake Superior. Now, for the first time, this book gathers all the Brown Dog novellas, including one never before published, into one volume"--Jacket.

Not funny and didn't hold my interest beyond about 25 pages.

This is a compilation of six novellas written over a period of thirteen years. All the novellas center around Brown Dog, a ne'er do well citizen of the UP of Michigan. Because of first-rate writing, you will come to know, admire, and maybe envy Brown Dog.
