From what I remember, a man is left alone with a baby. I seem to recall the two are in the wilderness alone. The baby is crying and starving to death and the man is pretty distraught. Then he starts lactating. He is happy, but also distraught at the whole milk from his chest thing. I seem to remember the chapter ending with his expression of dismay right as he figured out what was happening.
I read it over 10 years ago so it's at least that old. I cannot remember any other details from the book right now. There's a chance it was in a book from a Native American author, but I am not sure. I don't think it was a particularly obscure book.
Any ideas? Hopefully I didn't dream this up.
