It was a Sunday in June, 1783. Little Sarah and her sister and brothers listened while Mama read from the Bible. On this peaceful day, however, tragedy almost overtakes their New Hampshire homestead when Sarah wanders off by herself and becomes lost in the woods. After four anxious nights, she is found, and tells everyone of a big black dog who kept her warm and safe. Is Sarah telling the truth? Only one person -- a stranger to the town -- knows.
Colorful illustrations enhance a dramatic, almost unbelievable, but true, story.
