Product Description

About the Author

Leland lives in the middle of a beautiful nowhere that is Colorado's San Luis Valley. Angelo, the world famous Border Collie, and Maggie, his black Lab philosopher mix, allow him to share their off-grid home. All three tolerate The Cat who does a merely adequate job of rodent control. Leland has built the majority of the 1800 square foot all-solar home over almost four years, but is grateful to friends and neighbors who have helped with some of the heavy lifting. His website is www.hermitblog.com. The blog portion of his website is also available on the Kindle (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0034KYZ9A) Leland and Angelo have just published their latest collaborative work, Angelo's Journey. Angelo disappeared for five and a half weeks last year, and ever since, Leland has struggled to come up with what might have happened during that time. This book is a fictional account of that very dark time. Leland is currently working on his next two books. One is a fictionalized memoir of his mother, and the other is a mystery set in Colorado's beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountains.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It has a wonderful beginning. I liked the contrast between the two narrators at the start. The story is set up very well. You plunge straight into it. You're taken on a ride by this black and white dog, and you want to know what happens. It's an easy read and well edited. There are some interesting inclusions in the book, which I won't give away, but I thought them innovative. Nice chapter headings. Well formatted. There's an interesting conversation near the start about the nature of love in its many different forms, and its transience. Is it worth having if it doesn't last? The book is divided into small stories, told from the view of each character that our four-legged adventurer encounters. All are interesting. All of the voices are individual. And there is the framework of the `owner' missing his dog and wondering where he is, and if he'll ever find him again. Anyone picking up this book is in for a treat. Wagging tails all round.

If you love dogs then this is a must-read. If you are old enough to remember The Incredible Journey, then this short tale will tug at the heartstrings. It tell's the tale of an intelligent Border Collie who goes missing for 5 1/2 weeks. I defy anyone to read it and not be touched.

Angelo's Journey: A Border Collie's Quest for Home by Leland Dirks is filled with real-life emotion. I love how the author writes with such passion for Angelo. It makes my heart melt. So endearing, heartwarming and imaginative. I absolutely adored this book. I read with vigor wanting to know where it all would lead. There are so many positive reminders in this one book. I found it to be inspirational. This book made me laugh out loud and then filled my eyes with tears. It is written in such a way that as a reader you care. You want to see a happy resolve.

This story was an uplift and lifted my spirits high. Mr. Dirks captures humanity in such a unique way. He has a rare gift to tell a story about a dog without making it seem silly or irrelevant.

Angelo's Journey: A Border Collie's Quest for Home is a magical tale that pulled on my heartstrings and had me throughly wrapped up into Angelo’s adventures.

Quote ~

“Every one of those dogs at the Monte Vista shelter, even the one who had been shot, was ready for human love and trust. I am in awe of the canine ability to rebuild hope, even after having been abused.”

I loved this book and found it like the Little Hobo. I have a border collie and some of the things Angelo got up to ,my dog does so it must be in their breed. I recommend this book especially if you are a dog lover.

A brilliant story that you can not put down. I like the how the story is told through the dog's eyes and at times makes you fell as if you are there.Angelo's Journey: A Border Collie's Quest for Home

This beautiful little story is the perfect antidote to the busy, tired lives that many of us have to lead. It is uplifting, thought-provoking, desperately sad at times but massively cheering at the next turn. Whilst it is mostly fictional, it strikes a chord with the cruel realities of life and embraces the joyful moments we often find all too fleeting. Leland Dirks is an unique treasure and I look forward to reading many more of his books.

I couldn't put this book down. I just had to get to the last page. What happened in between is so heartwarming and beautifully written, you really believe it is Angelo writing, and he really did have the adventures he writes about. Only a dog lover, or a dog, could write like this! Well done Leland and Angelo.

Different to the other books about dogs that I have read. It didn't run together like other books which have one story through them where this had several bits but didn't have a thread running from one event to the other. But I did enjoy it
