'Phantom, Queen of the Road' is the personal account of this man's effort to save this beautiful creature.
For co-author Lee Youde, there was never any doubt this animal needed to be saved. The challenge was to get County officials and the local Humane Society to recognize the importance of the effort, and most importantly, to find a good family for the dog once it was captured from the wild winter weather it was about to face. If you have a love for dogs and their special relationship with their human family, you will enjoy reading this diary. It takes a special kind of man to invest so much time and effort to extend a loving hand to a fearful dog that was desperately trying to adapt to life in the wild.
I felt that the book missed the opportunity to capture a sense of the foreboding landscape other than to document the extremes in temperature, and some of the character development is a little thin, but as I followed the timeline of events, I came to the same conclusion that the authors did; Mr. Youde's extreme efforts of saving and ultimately adopting this dog has resulted in a joy-filled lifetime partnership.
