"This collection of true stories is about some of the many dogs the author has known throughout her life. The stories range from the compassionate to gripping adventure. Many of the stories show the courage and heroism of the author's beloved dogs on their exciting adventures in Alaska and The Arctic. Through sharing her adventures and friendships with her dogs the author brings the reader to an understanding of what dogs are capable of and what they can teach us. The author conveys her deep insight into dogs by clearly describing their personalities and character traits. This combined with the author's remarkable skill at telling stories makes for a fascinating and enjoyable read. The black and white illustrations complement the text. An introduction, pronunciation guide, and glossary are included. Although dog lovers will relish these stories, this book is for anyone who enjoys well told stories with memorable characters. This book offers many opportunities for discussion such a bullying, teamwork, and forgiveness." —K Zuidema, Southern Maine Library District
