Editorial Reviews

From the Author

If  you decide you want an English Setter for a pet, hunting partner or show dog after reading The Hunt of Her Life, I suggest contacting the rescue division of the English Setter Association of America or the breeders who play a role in this book. Please consider adopting a rescue Setter. Groups that place homeless dogs include Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue, Another Chance for English Setters, Our English Setter Rescue and Southwest English Setter Rescue in United States and SettUsFree in the United Kingdom. English Setters are versatile pets who make wonderful companions, but please remember that they require at least two hours of vigorous exercise a day.

From the Back Cover

The Hunt of Her Life, a nonfiction book about Samantha, an English Setter rescue dog, will make you smile, sob and captivate your to the very end.

Travel with this bird dog along a trail filled with surprising twists, sudden turns, mystery and even what some call a miracle. And when the journey is finished, you may never look at people and their pets, motherhood, and perhaps even God in the same way.

This full-color book with more than 60 beautiful color photos of dogs is appropriate for teens and tweens with a little parental guidance.

So go on the journey of your life and find out what's at the end of Samantha's amazing trail in The Hunt of Her Life.

Dog lovers, especially English Setter lovers or hunting dog folks will really enjoy this book.
It's a very fast read... I read it on an airplane in just a couple of hours. Very touching and heartwarming,
and fascinating to follow the author as he re-traces the dog's champion bloodline.

Having English Setters myself,the book grabbed by attention and held it until I had it read.an amazing story about a courageous dog and dedicated owner, and the special bond between the two.
The search for Sam's bloodline was a great piece of investigative work.
Really enjoyed it,would recommend it !

I enjoyed this story of Samantha and the search for her ancestry. The author's persistence in tracking down her breeder and her particular line of sires and dams is commendable in the face of such unlikely odds. Samantha was a "heart dog" (to use the words of author Jon Katz) for Mr. Repucci, and there is little we would not do for these dogs we connect with so strongly. He was able to continue this lineage with Lady and Sam, and that has to be a rewarding endeavor.
