"This title is an excellent selection for family listening or for anyone desiring an uplifting, but realistic tale." (AudioFile)
Examples of real love, faith and the power of prayer, sacrifice, perseverance, and reward. We need more of this in our world today. Truly enjoyable! Great character depiction and realistic accents. Easy relaxing listening. Entertaining/suitable for young and old.
Having only know Anthony Heald as the creepy psychiatrist from the movie Silence of the Lambs, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. However his rendition of this wonderful novel is touching, multi faceted, and terrific.
i read this and the shiloh trilogy when i was about 8. i then vowed to never read them again. well i broke that. to this day, absolutely amazing book and the narration is done very well. nice even pace that makes it easy to do chapter after chapter. one thing i will say is that if you havn't read this before, don't listen to the end at work or anything. bad juju
Since first reading this amazing book in 3rd grade, I've read and reread, listened to and relistened to this amazing story close to a hundred times! Still makes me cry every time, and I still want a couple hound dogs of my own.
