DOG DAYS OF SUMMER: The HIdden Life of Dogs by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

Product Description

Have you ever wondered what the world looks like to your dog? Or what it smells like? Do dogs have dreams and, if so, what about? And are dogs really capable of emotion? THE HIDDEN LIFE OF DOGS was a sensational bestseller on first publication and is now considered a classic. In her riveting account of thirty years spent living with dogs, wolves and dingoes, Elizabeth Marshall Thomas provides a fascinating insight into a species very different from our own, yet in many respects surprisingly familiar.

About the Author

Elizabeth Marshall Thomas is the author of The Harmless People, a non-fiction work about the !Kung Bushmen of southwestern Africa, and of Reindeer Moon, a novel about the paleolithic hunter-gatherers of Siberia, both of which were tremendous international successes. She lives in New Hampshire.

This book is a classic dog story.  It is on my keeper shelf of dog books.  I think this one has been in reprint since 1993.  I lost the dust jacket of mine several moves ago so maybe it is time to get a new copy.

    1. It looks interesting. We often try to figure out what our dog is dreaming about when her legs move while she's sleeping!
