A Man's Dream and a Hero Dog
A Man's Dream and A Hero Dog is the first novel written by author Richard Nordahl, a lifelong resident of rural Oregon. This story has found its way into Nordahl's dreams night after night, and year after year for nearly three decades. This tale is one of tender companionship between the two unlikely main characters - a man named Richard and his German Shepard dog George. As the two are backpacking and making their way across America, from border to border, tragedy strikes. Mental telepathy on the dog's part takes up an amazing twist to the story line. Who would have ever thought such an extra ordinary thing could happen...

About Richard I Nordahl
Richard Nordahl has lived in the Pacific Northwest since early childhood and attended the local public schools. He worked as a millworker and carpenter for his entire adult life until retiring to pursue his hobbies. Fishing and the outdoors are the places he finds to be his favorite places to be. And now, writing has added a new sparkle to his life. Since his retirement he remains on the beautiful Oregon coast. He and his wife Carolyn have traveled extensively in the past and now he has settled down to try his hand at telling the stories that have made their way into his dreams for nearly 30 years. The dog George, in this story, resembles Richard's childhood pet Brownie, and perhaps this has created a way to re-connect him with his childhood memories. George is a hero of extraordinary proportions and makes us believe anything is possible. At the end of this story you will find a recipe for Richard's famous smoked salmon. You just may want to try it.
