A lonely boy who lives on the mainland. A childless couple who look after a lighthouse. A rocket-ship kennel that appears from nowhere. This is the story of DOGMAN!
John Alexander Dowie (1847-1907) was a Scottish evangelist and faith healer who came to San Francisco in 1888 and built up a following by performing faith healing across the state. Later, Dowie gained fame by renting property adjacent to the World's Fair in Chicago in 1893. There he staged elaborate "divine healings" in front of large audiences. In 1900 he announced the founding the city of Zion, 40 miles from Chicago, where he owned all the property personally.
