About the Author
J. Allen Boone (17 February 1882 - 17 June 1965) was an American author of several books about non-verbal communication with animals in the 1940s and 1950s. He wrote much on his friendship with Strongheart, a film star-German shepherd, who he credits with teaching him how to achieve deeper bonds through extrasensory perception, a “silent language” that can be learned. Boone was an early film producer and correspondent for the Washington Post. His friendships in Hollywood led to his care-taking of Strongheart.

A lovely tribute from a man to a dog who he loves. A tribute through genuine letters from his heart. Knowing they shall again be together in the great yonder by the grace of GOD. I for one shall seek both their company. J Allen Boone and Strongheart when I reach the great yonder. .... by the grace of GOD. Touching and wonderful.!!!!! Loved it!!!!!
I read this book while I was unknowingly enjoying my last weeks with my best pal, Nikki. I felt the love, honor and respect that Boone had for Strongheart. Dogs are so much more than most people give them credit and it is a wonderful person that sees this and writes about it! Amazing that I happened onto this wonderful collection of letters to a great dog, while I was still able to look lovingly to my pal, Nikki! And while she was alive I was able to realize, through this book, all of the wonderful things that my Nikki had shown me and helped me to learn! Great book!
