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!

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.

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.

This short book is a little gem. Maggie's wisdom spoke to my heart...and pierced it with it's simplicity and truth. She also made me smile at her antics. Beautifully illustrated with Leland Dirk's stunning photography, this is a book to read and re-read, whenever one feels the need to have one's spirits lifted, and one's soul replenished. Maggie is, indeed a very special dog! Let her be a part of your life. You won't regret it.

Cute little book, or maybe not a book. I would have liked to read a little more of this book. It can be read in about 10 minutes, of course maybe that is all a dog could write.

I love Maggie however, so I don't mind this being such a short book and I gave her 5 stars.

I purchased Angelo's Journey by this author and enjoyed it so much that I went looking for other works by him. I'm so glad I came across Maggie---I love it! This isn't a book in the traditional sense that you are carried by plot points from beginning to end. This is a book that offers up nuggets of wisdom, humor, photos, and all around zen to enjoy again and again. I have taken to picking it up and just looking at a page or 2 and find that it always gives me a laugh, a smile, or a thought to chew on. It's a little bit poetry, a little bit quote book, and alot of inspiration and wisdom as you look at the world through Maggie's eyes. I would love a sequel!
