Based on Kafka’s “Report to the Academy” The Story of Sam was written by an Australian Shepard that lived his life in the Hudson Valley of New York State, but died at the edge of a highway in Sandoval County, New Mexico.
Heavily illustrated with SX 70’s, Polaroid’s and Album photos of Sam and Lily, his Brittany Spaniel confidant, Sam’s ability to write was so highly regarded that he was posthumously voted into the Academy of Arts and Sciences.
