It weaves history, war, show business, humanity, wit, and grace into an incredible story about America, the human-animal bond, and the countless ways we'd be lost without dogs by our sides, on our screens, and in our books. This is the story Susan Orlean was born to tellit's filled with amazing characters, reporting, and writing." – Rebecca Skloot.
