Review

"Jon Katz understands dogs as few others do, intuitively and unburdened by sentimentality. His keen insights cut to the heart of the human-pet relationship - its immense joys and painful sorrows. With wisdom and grace, he unlocks the canine soul and the complicated wonders that lie within and offers powerful inights to anyone who has ever struggled with, and loved, a troubled animal" John Grogan, author of MARLEY AND ME "Katz's books on life with dogs and other animals have really caught the public's imagination. [He] writes about animals with insight and a refreshing lack of sentimentality" Mail on Sunday "Perfect relaxing bedtime reading" Your Dog "Anyone who loves animals or country life, but maybe can't have a pet or actually live in the country, will find Katz a perfect armchair companion" Publishers Weekly starred review "A must-read for all animal lovers" Booklist

I'm old fashioned - I enjoy the physical contact with a book, instead of the fleeting image of an ebook.
I collect selections from my favorite authors to revisit with no more complex apparatus req'd than a flashlight or candle.
Jon Katz is one of my valued authors.

I love them all, as will any "dog" person. You follow him through his learning experiences, struggles with difficult dogs, heartbreak sometimes, but so rewarding as relationships develop.

I've read most of Mr. Katz' non-fiction books and this one did not disappoint me. I read it in a matter of a few days.

I am drawn in to the farm myself. The farm evolves as you read on. Great writing. Wonderful Story. Great dogs.
