This is the story of a young man whose fateful journey collides with that of a battlefield puppy, setting into motion an extraordinary tale of devotion. Beginning with a tale of redemption, Orlean unfolds a riveting account of the history of both the German shepherd, whose breed exemplifies the good-natured qualities that have made dog and human relationships unparalleled in society, and of early American movie making. The result is a wonderful odyssey beautifully depicting loyalty and friendship in a remarkable history lesson and an entertaining read. -- Megan Bruce, Watermark Books, Wichita, KS

Description


At its heart, "Rin Tin Tin" is a poignant exploration of the enduring bond between humans and animals. But it is also a richly textured history of 21st-century entertainment and entrepreneurship and the changing role of dogs in the American family and society.
