Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, A Dog's Way Home is an unforgettable tale of the many miles, months, and mountains that divide two loyal friends--but that can't possibly keep them apart.

Abby knows that Tam, her Shetland sheepdog, is her north star, and she's pretty certain she's his, too. But when an accident separates Abby and Tam, it feels as though all the stars have fallen out of the sky and nothing will ever be right again. As the days between them turn to weeks, then months, dangers and changes fill up Abby's and Tam's lives. Will they ever find their way home to each other?

Daddy says, "Most folks got a north star in their life--something that gives their life extra meaning. Mine is music."

Without even thinking, I say, "Mine is Tam."

Back cover copy

Miles, months, and mountains can't possibly keep them apart.

Eleven-year-old Abby and her Shetland sheepdog, Tam, are each other's everything--best friends, a championship-winning agility team, and loyal beyond either of their imaginings. But then the unthinkable happens and Abby and Tam are separated by a tragic accident. As their days apart turn to weeks and then months, dangers and changes fill up Abby's and Tam's lives. Will they ever find their way back home to each other?

Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Bobbie Pyron's evocative, memorable storytelling is rich with music, miracles, unexpected friendships, and abundant hopefulness.
