Our customer reviews

This was a very unique book. I enjoyed every chapter, as I learned about each new dog that passed through Gary Paulsen's life. All of them true stories, of course. I do like the author's writing style very much, and it's amazing how descriptive the book is. I'd pick it up and read it again! I loved each & every one of these dog's stories.show more
