" This book is special in that it is autobiographical, but it reads like an animal story. Paulsen did a great job of telling the reader about his life without seeming like he was talking about himself at all. The book is filled with incredible dog stories that anyone would appreciate. I actually thought at one point that it wasn't doing a very good job of telling me about his life. It wasn't until later, as I was talking to some students, that I realized how many of the facts about his life I had absorbed while becoming lost in the stories. That's talent! "
