Susan Orlean can always be expected to surprise. Her 1998 The Orchid Thief, had an improbable subject (a purloiner of fine flowers) became a word-of-mouth bestseller. For Rin Tin Tin, her first original book since that time, she again picked a topic far from the beaten path. From what has dwindled to a footnote in movie and television history, she has reconstructed a history about a German Shepherd hero who was first discovered on a WWI battlefield and went on to become a four-footed legend. Her account of the original Rin Tin Tin and his namesake descendants shares its subject's winning freshness. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
