KIRKUS REVIEW

Companion volume to the popular Horses of Destiny, this is again a collection of true stories of famous dogs, legendary stories that are part of literature, stories of heroic dogs. The first story is of a dog who lived 3600 years ago in Egypt, a tale made immortal on papyrus. There is Ulysses' faithful hound; Alexander's dog; there's Mathe, Greyhound of Richard II, Barry, famous St. Bernard, Flush, some war dogs, and many others whose stories have been gleaned from history, myth and half-remembered records.
