Review Text

  • By A customer on March 25, 2000

    This book was really enjoyable. I love stories about dogs, and Roger Caras was able to find many new and unique dog stories that I had never read or even heard of, and I have quite a few old out of print books with dog stories. Very enjoyable. Very nice variety. Of course, included a story by "the master" of dog stories- Albert Payson Terhune. If you love dog stories and have never heard of Terhune, you're missing out! Terhune wrote about 100 years ago and most of his books are out of print. However, there are a few of his books, such as Lad, a Dog and Lad of Sunnybank still in print. Lad, A Dog has never been OUT of print. Great book, very enjoyable. Also check out his "sequel"- "The New Roger Caras Treasury of Great Dog Stories" with many new dog stories

    There are of course plenty of dog tales I'd like to have seen in here, but Caras' selection is mighty fine, and does have some of the very best in the genre. Almost every writer here is a true master, so it's hard to go wrong. Twain, London, O. Henry, Terhune, Lawrence, and so many more...can't really miss the mark with that crowd.Plus it does have my all-time favorite dog tale, John Muir's incomparably thrilling story of his icy adventure in Alaska with Stickeen, the little wonder pooch of them all. Muir is one of our greatest nature writers and perhaps writers, period, by my estimation, so finding his finest dog tale here gives this volume the stamp of authentic quality.To be a great writer one must have a great mind, and no great mind can ignore the inestimable gift of canine companionship, in any century. This collection makes that very apparent. And who knows? Perhaps some of our finest works of literature may have been inspired by many a muse with four legs and a wagging tail.If you're a dog lover looking for quality tales of our wonderful canine companions, this is as good a place to start as any.

    Find a story in this book that you don't like, it's hard. I've bought several copies for friends, if you love dog stories, this is the one you want. Also check out "Dog Songs" by Kirk Olsen

    As always, anything written by the late, great dog person, Roger Caras really IS a treasure trove, and this is no exception!

    Most of these stories were written at a time when cats were not loved, acknowledged as sentient beings, or appreciated.They think it is funny to tease, mock, abuse, and kill cats. There may have been something different later in the book, but I gave up after the first few, because they were so disheartening.
