A full-fashioned dog story in the grand manner, glowing with an affectionate appreciation of the dog and his wild relatives. Windruff, an Alsatian puppy, was adopted by a cables vixen, and taught the life of the wilderness by his foster mother on Dartmoor's Links Tor. Driven on the one hand by his acquired habits as a beast of prey, on the other by his inherited need for human companionship, Windruff at last returns to the domesticated rule with a young man he trusts. Thrilling action, lovely setting and the towering sentiment dog lovers demand -- Mr. Chipperfield makes the death of a dog the death of a king. Sure dog-fan fare.
