After her parents and baby sister are killed in a car accident, Silver Nickles longs for a dog to help fill the void left by their deaths. Her grandfather refuses to buy her one, but eventually, through a combination of faith, hard work, and luck, Silver adopts a greyhound. High tells the story in a rural mountain dialect and includes plenty of details to make the characters and setting come to life. -- Copyright © 1996 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved.
