Tony Tindale is a young lawyer sent on a mission to rescue an uncle he barely knows. What he discovers is Edgar: a man innocent in the ways of the world, brought up on a desperate farm in the west of New South Wales and orphaned too soon, whose only solace is the dogs who find him. A natural target for suspicion in the small, isolated community, inevitably one day Edgar is found in the wrong place at the wrong time. Grassdogs is a superb evocation of the Australian landscape, and a moving story of the nature of innocence, of families and justice. (Back cover)
