Engrossing. . . . Bears the abundant mark of sheer genius. The Plain Dealer
Better and more powerful than Watership Down. Providence Journal

Excellent. New York Daily News

Adams writes brilliantly about animals. . . . When these dogs are on the move, they compel us to follow, trotting along the narrative path on all the legs we have. Saturday Review
