Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lad, a courageous and dignified 80-pound collie, lived in The Place. The Place was thick with woods, abounding with squirrels to chase, and a cool lake in which to plunge — a beautiful kingdom — and Lad was its undisputed king. Lad's loyalty to his chosen Master and Mistress knew no bounds. The stories in this book are all about Lad. Some will make you laugh out loud, some will make you cry. And when the book comes to its conclusion, you will know one thing for sure — that Lad was a dog with a soul . . .

Synopsis:

Before there was Lassie, there was Lad--a dog whose loyalty and courage set him apart. Since its original publication over 70 years ago, Terhune's classic has touched countless readers. Lad is based upon one of Terhune's many collies. Illustrated.

This book introduces you to a series by the author that is unsurpassed in the genre. The only thing I can think of that even comes near is Walter Farley's Black Stallion series. What makes these memorable is the romanticized view Terhune has of animals in general, and Lad in particular. Having owned many collies myself, I've no doubt this one was as grand a dog as he is depicted. A special one comes around every so often in ones lifetime. This book documents that one in Terhunes life.
