Here is the story of a family and two remarkable individuals -- Lewis Burkholder, a farmer in Virginia, and his young Border Collie, Nop. When the dog is stolen, Nop embarks on an ordeal of peril and hardship that he survives only through courage and love. The same qualities in Lewis enable him to search relentlessly for his sheep dog -- a search that takes him far from home and touches forgotten corners of his life.

Genre: General Fiction

Praise for this book

"Poignant, authentic, beautiful... gripping as a thriller... Jack London's books made me cry as a boy and this nearly did the same to me now." - James Herriot
