I only read the account of Snickers, a cocker spaniel puppy, and Gulliver, a mature macaw, shipwrecked on a tiny island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in December of 2007. It is clear to me that the person who created the part dealing with Snickers and Gulliver has merely compiled some of the many news accounts of their plight and created a narrative by cherry-picking items from those accounts and weaving them into a "story."
How would I know that? I'm the person who actually put the rescue of Snickers and Gulliver into motion after reading of their plight in the March 24, 2008 edition of 'Lectronic Ltitude, [...] the online version of the San Francisco sailing publication, Latitude 38. Without delineating each of the misstatements of "fact" in Steiger's rendition of the story of Snickers and Gulliver, I can assure everyone that not only is the rendition in this book completely inaccurate, the truth is much more compelling than the author is apparently aware.
A little actual research on his part would have served him and his book well, in my opinion, Above all, it would have led him and his readers to the true story.
Should this book be condemned because one particular account is over-generalized and inaccurate? No, I wouldn't go that far. It's possible that the author was diligent in all the other stories of lost dogs and found that unearthing the facts in the case of Snickers and Gulliver was just too difficult, or even beyond his capabilities.
So I've given "Four-Legged Miracles" three stars, meaning (as Amazon puts it) that "It's OK." I did so because I know people like to read about dogs finding their way home.Read more ›
The canine instincts and intuition of these amazing dogs helped them against seemingly insurmountable odds. These stories also highlight the intelligence and courage of the "family dog".
Fighting natural disasters, predators, injuries, unknown conditions of both weather and terrain, these dogs not only survived but persevered until attaining their goal of reunion with their family.
Following a tornado, Mason the terrier crawled home on two broken legs. Buca sat for over two months on a Utah hill, overlooking an Interstate, waiting for his family car to return for him. A Beagle named Eddie walked over 450 miles to reunite and help his disable little boy. These are just some of the examples of canine love and loyalty.
The book is filled with heartwarming stories. I highly recommend this book to animal lovers, especially those who have ever loved and been loved by a dog.
I have yet to read a Brad Steiger book that doesn't leave a smile, a tear, a raised eyebrow or even a shudder. His range of subjects is incredible but when he writes about Miracle animals, whether cats, dogs, horses or whatever, they come alive. This book tells of animals who have found their way home through impossible situations and against impossible odds. Fortunately, although lost, my big friend, Zena, found her way ALMOST home several times. Her story is a testament to the love of many.
If you are an animal lover, of any species, you will love any "Miracle" animal book Brad puts out and this book, "Four Legged Miracles" is a good place to start.

The first part of the book seemed to drag a little - I mean the stories of dogs' returning home seemed o be a little repititious - that is, too many of them. Read morePublished on June 19, 2013 by Ruth Harvey
