From the instant they spotted the forlorn puppy in the kennel, Cindy and Peter Martin knew she was the one for them. Refusing to remain a mere pet, Perth becomes an adored member of the household, and embodies the young couple's dreams. The Martins swear to always let Perth run free, and she becomes an indefatigable explorer with an infallible compass. From her adoption in upstate New York and her incredible survival in the wilderness of Vermont to her later adventures in the English countryside, Perth rewards the Martins with unshakable trust and unstinting love. This is an entertaining, beautifully written homage to a very special dog.
Author Biography: Peter Martin was born in Argentina and grew up in the United States. He has taught English literature at universities here and in England, and is the author of The Life of James Boswell, among other works. He now lives in the village of Bury, West Sussex, England.
