'In 1972, when I first began to discover the delights of the mountains and then became involved with search and rescue, I found that I could combine my love of dogs with this new passion for the great outdoors. Search Dogs & Me charts the journey which has taken me and my dogs from Donegal, Kerry, the Lake District and the Mountains of Mourne to Kashmir, Turkey and Algeria.' Neil Powell Search Dogs & Me tells the remarkable story of one man's adventures with his life-saving dogs. For the past forty years, Neil Powell has worked with dogs, in mountain search and rescue, drowned victim recovery, collapsed structure searching, and optical disc and drug detection. Neil and his dogs have participated in countless searches - often in life-threatening situations - and saved many lives in Ireland, the United Kingdom and throughout the world. But these are not just heroic working dogs, they are much-loved family pets, and they form the heart of the story. We come to know their personalities and quirks, and share in Neil's heartbreak when they reach the end of their days. Search Dogs & Me is a heartwarming, inspiring and beautifully told story that will melt - and break - the hearts of dog lovers everywhere.
