Gwen | 3 comments I believe I read this in the late 1980's. It is a novel told from the perspective of a retired physician. He is a widower who misses his wife tremendously. When he is diagnosed with a terminal cancer, he decides that he will end his life doing one of his favorite activities, hunting. He begins a hunting trip with a favorite dog and has many encounters with people and places. Along the way his dog is injured and he carries him to the next town.
