"Nice For Fans"
"Here is Betty White - a woman who has been on television forever!" is generally how Betty White is introduced. And quite accurately, too, since she first appeared in 1949, when both she and television were rank beginners. Since then, she has had one of the most amazing careers in TV, winning five Emmy awards, creating such unforgettable characters as Sue Ann Nivens and Rose Nylund, and appearing in a host of television classics.
"Betty's Life Story Is Amazing!"
The star of television's The Golden Girls recounts the tale of Dinah, a seeing eye dog who, no longer able to work for her blind master after going blind herself, was adopted by White.
A compelling, heart-warming story for anyone who's ever loved a dog . . . or lost sight of what matters most in life. At the height of a physical conquest for any mountain climber, one misstep took Brendan McCarthy on a tumble that cost him his sight-and just about everything he held dear. But a special dog named Nelson helped pull him back to life and show Brendan how to see what really matters.
