Hoping to get more information regarding owning a malamute, I purchased this book by Tommy Williams. I realized it was a story specifically about his dog, Noah, but I guess I was hoping there would have been a little more guidance for a new malamute owner. Mr. Williams story read like a blog or diary entries, and while it was an interesting and sometimes emotional tale, it just wasn't quite what I was looking for.
If you purchase this book, do so because you enjoy stories by pet owners. There are some good references to other reading material, such as The Leader of the Pack, which is what Mr. Williams followed to prove himself the Alpha in his "pack". Something that is wise to do when dealing with the Northern breeds. I appreciated the story of Noah and Mr. Williams, so all was not lost.

Arguably this book has a limited audience, those who's lives have been touched by an Alaskan Malamute. Fortunately I am a member of that audience. I wondered if I was the only one who found Malamutes to be unlike any other pet, to be capable of overwhelming and surprising me on a daily basis unlike any of the other wonderful dogs I've had in my life. This book, and many of the other reviews, indicate that it's not just me. If you love dogs and you're thinking of getting a Malamute, this book will let you know what you are in for. I recommend this book to any animal lover, to anyone lucky enough to share his or her life with a wonderful pet. This book is a very personal account by a real life Malamute owner. This book is not meant to compete with classic literature. This book is not overly polished and edited. It is a better book as a result because the author is speaking from the heart.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this ebook. Started this morning and finished this evening. I laughed at many of Noah's antics having seen them in my own Alaskan Malamutes!! I met Noah 1998 at the National Specialty in PA. He is beautifully portrayed in this ebook.

Tommy has captured the essence of what it is like to share your life with an Alaskan Malamute.

I cried at the end, too. He captures what many of us feel when we let go of our beloved malamutes and the dignity we see in these magnificent canines. I recommend this book for the novice and experienced Alaskan Malamute owner. For the novice, you will not feel so alone when you are wondering why your dog did that. And the experienced, you will see your dogs in Noah and remember what it was like owning your first Alaskan Malamute!!

Thank you Tommy (Wild) sharing your story.

I lost my Alaskan Malamute in March of this year due to aggressive nasal cancer, I can totally say I loved my dog so much, missed him even more, he was the most lovable n sweet dog. This book reminded me so much of Xiao Loong, my heart is broken 😞

Written in a straightforward, honest manner. The author's writing style is unconventional, it does not try to boister itself with elegance in using words. It is a simple account of a man's journey with a wonderful, majestic creature of the north, how they can touch us to our very souls, and of the lessons they teach us about life. It is a story of unconditional love, a friendship that reverberates to the soul, and unbelievable devotion. It is a story of the heart wrenching destiny given to us as mortals on earth, when it is time to say goodbye to the ones we love, and of the realization that love does transcend death, and that the pain is all worth it.

The writing is very personal, full of emotions, but never had I read anything more beautiful in my life.

Written from the heart. I cannot give a better praise than that.

I did not expect such an amazing read, initially expecting just another dog book. This book took me on a journey like no other. Being an Alaskan Malamute owner myself I couldn't help but laugh and cry every few pages, relating to so much. But also so many other things brought up like life and love and everything that comes with loving an Alaskan Malamute! What an awesome book!

The author takes us on a journey, from the moment he saw his first Malamute, to finding and obtaining Noah, his first dog, and through Noah's life until that horrible, heart breaking moment we all come to, Noah's passing.

If you've ever tried to explain to someone the relationship you have with your dog, or why your Malamute is more than "just a dog", you should have this book on your bookshelf- it has the words for you. Regardless of whether you are owned by a couch potato, a "look at me" showdog, or a harness nut, this is a great read. If you've ever owned and loved a dog, you will love this book.
