For the Love of God looks at the humorous, the serious, and, at times, tragic experiences owners share with their dogs. Lyrical and metaphorical, many poems in this collection recount the experiences Harrison has shared with the dogs he’s had the pleasure and honor of knowing through the years. His three Drahthaars were consecutive companions for over forty years of hunting, fishing, and canoeing adventures in some of the wilder parts of Nebraska, from the Sandhills and the Pine Ridge, to the Platte, Loup, Niobrara, and Elkhorn River valleys. Obviously, for this poet, the companionship of a dog is about as close as one can get to the love of God.
