Terhune's classic book of adventure stories involving heroic dogs and their masters is presented anew to the modern reader.
Originally published in 1922, this collection of short fiction featuring canines channels Albert Payson Terhune's profound love for man's best friend. After beginning this compilation with a poetic forward, we hear of the adventures of various collie dogs, whose intelligence and prowess in tracking and herding secured their lasting popularity in rural America, and a place as prominent characters in fiction.
The stories are universally imbued by the author's love and experience for breeding and raising hounds, particularly the rough collie breed. Unusually for popular fiction, one may encounter occasional pointers and knowledge about breeding dogs in the descriptions Terhune uses in his narratives.
Albert Terhune was, from the 1900s to the 1930s, a regular contributor to popular magazines and journals.
