GOLDEN BOOK OF DOG STORIES

A favorite field of editorial endeavor in a new anthology which lacks the diversity of angle and approach as well as the general excellence of Jack Goodman's Fireside Book of Dog Stories (S & S-1943). Here the stories vary on the theme of man's love for his dog and dog's love for man; they are perhaps predictably sentimental. War dogs, firehouse dogs, sporting dogs, shepherd dogs, and just plain dogs receive tribute from such time-tested writers as Albert Payson Terhune, Ernest Thompson Seton, Don Marquis, Arthur Train, Booth Tarkington, Mark Twain, James Oliver Gurwood, Zane Grey, Frank Buck. A foreign note is introduced with Turgeniev, Galsworthy, Ilya Ehrenburg, Anatole France. Not top drawer.
