Publisher's Summary

Saturday, October 10, 1998. Fielding Marshall is hiking on the Appalachian Trail. His beloved dog - a six-year-old golden retriever named Gonker - bolts into the woods. Just like that, he has vanished. And Gonker has Addison's disease. If he's not found in 23 days, he will die.

The search begins. Fielding and his father, John, are dispatched to the field. They have the family's other dog, Uli, in tow. Combing the trails, Fielding and his father bond like never before. Fielding's sister, Peyton, calls and talks him through some of his lowest moments. And at home Fielding's mother, Virginia, sets up a command center. Virginia becomes a field general. With a map and a phone book at her side, she contacts animal shelters, police precincts, general stores, community centers, newspapers, radio stations, churches, and park rangers. She is tireless. The local paper in Waynesboro writes a small story about the family's search. The story hits the AP Newswire. But as the search continues, the Marshalls realize that they may not survive losing him. Even as the wounds of their past return to haunt them and threaten to jeopardize everything, they know they have one mission: to bring Gonker home.

    "Excellent!"

    I completely enjoyed this book. I felt that I knew the characters from the beginning. My empathy was with Gonker and Fielding, strange as the man was. Very well done. Good narration.
