As Nop’s Hope begins, Penny Burkeholder is on the road in her battered pickup, earning what money she can on the sheepdog trail circuit with her only friend in the world, her dog Hope, a remarkable border collie. After a hard and dangerous journey, Penny arrives at the national finals in Wyoming, where the strength of her bond with Hope is challenged in the arena. There she is reunited at last with her father and mother, and Hope is reunited with Nop. As wise about animals as it is about the mystery of human love, Nop’s Hope will be warmly received by those who remember Nop’s Trials and by countless others who will encounter this enthralling saga for the first time.
