More About the Author

Leland lives in the middle of a beautiful nowhere that is Colorado's San Luis Valley. Angelo, the world famous Border Collie, and Maggie, his black Lab philosopher mix, allow him to share their off-grid home.

Angelo and Leland's first two collaborative efforts, Seven Dogs in Heaven and Angelo's Journey, are now available in Kindle, Audible, and paperback formats.

Their most ambitious book yet, Jimmy Mender and His Miracle Dog, is available in both Kindle and paperback editions. A story of journeys, of losses, of gains, it illustrates that sometimes the only way to find out what's important is to leave everything behind.

Please search for Leland Dirks - Author on Facebook to enjoy Leland's photography, and the latest news about their books.

This book is written from the perspective of a young dog who lives with "The Man", her big brother Angelo, and a cat. Maggie's outlook on life is displayed creatively to include her thoughts and reflections on the finer points in life. She reminds us of the things we don't take the time to discover or enjoy for ourselves. This delightful 'short story' is accompanied by several pictures that include some of the most beautiful scenery. Although I don't recall there being any photo credits, I would guess that they were taken by the multi-talented Leland Dirks (a.k.a. "The Man").

I would highly recommend this book to anyone that needs to be reminded of what love and joy are all about.

Dog lovers, people lovers, and all who care for our world and our pets --this short but delightfully rich book is charming. It was a joy to share at a family gathering with folks from 5 to 75. We all loved it.

Another great read from The Hermit, in this publication referred to as "The Man". Leland's has a wonderful, creative way with words and this writing reflects that perfectly! His love of animals and the environment he lives are reflected through Maggie's words. LOVE IT!

I have had the pleasure of following Leland's blog over the years and have thoroughly enjoyed his adventures in the San Luis Valley in Colorado with his dogs Angelo and Maggie and "the cat." This little jewel of a book left me smiling and a little teary-eyed. The tidbits of wisdom Maggie offers focus on the small but important things in life. And the photos remind me of how much I love this beautiful, out of the way piece of paradise surrounded by breathtaking mountain ranges.

to Leland, I'm sure this book is exactly what they'd write. Leland must have listened well. The pictures included are just gorgeous, showing off the valley where Maggie, Angelo, and Leland make their home.

If you love dogs and smiles, this book must be in your Kindle collection.

Leland Hermit once again gives us a warm and welcome view into his life through the eyes of the precious Maggie. I remember when Leland adopted Maggie and have followed the times when Angelo decided to go out into the world on his own leaving The Man alone. Leland chose to adopt Maggie - and Maggie brought new warmth and content to Leland's life. When Angelo returned Maggie and Angelo became true brothers. This story always brings tears to my eyes and I can not wait to read the world as told by Angelo! Good job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maggie's book of wisdom is written by the dog... and it's full of the joy of a dog that's loved. Anyone who has ever loved a dog will love this book. I've read it and will re-read it again and again, just for the joy of it. It's a quick read, but so worth the price... I'll just keep enjoying the wisdom of Maggie.

I just loved it! Thanks Leland for helping Maggie write her thoughts for all of us. I don't what was better - the words or the pictures. I love it all!
