White Dogs is the story of a young woman and the six men who know her in six different ways.  It is the story of how the way men see women
affects both men and women.  Master story teller James Baker has created an astounding commentary on the human condition, discovering universal truths in a few grains of sand along the side of a rural road.  Mary Charlotte Lafferty's life is molded by these six men: her father, whose suicide leaves her to grow up with a brother; her brother whose
innocence involves the two in the world's oldest taboo; the boy preacher
who falls in love with her and loses his innocence as he learns the
truth and strips her of her own innocence; the Mexican who helps her
escape her prison and by worshiping her destroys himself; the man who
uses his wealth to make claims on her that result in the deaths of two
men; and the boy who starts out to kill her and what she means to him
and ends up loving her as none of the others did or could do.  This book
could just be a sleeping masterpiece.
