One of the most popular sources of compelling stories and practical advice about dogs is DogTown, the National Geographic Channel's latest hit show. DogTown is the nation's largest animal sanctuary run by the Best Friends Animal Society, a national rescue organization with more than 200,000 members. This informative, inspiring book tells the stories of dogs considered unadoptable by other shelters.


These compelling, winningly illustrated true stories, each uniquely moving and inspirational, draw upon the experience of veterinarians, trainers, and volunteers to probe a range of tough, touching cases that evoke both the joy and the occasional but inevitable heartbreak that accompanies this work. Each chapter follows a dog from the first day at Dogtown until he ultimately finds (or doesn't find) a permanent new home, focusing both on the relationship between the dog and the Dogtown staff and on the latest discoveries about animal health and behavior.

Shiloh, 1862 - Hardcover
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Books/Culture, History and Religion/History

In the spring of 1862, many Americans still believed that the Civil War would be over by Christmas. The previous summer in Virginia, Bull Run, with nearly 5,000 casualties, had been shocking, but suddenly came word from a far away place in the wildernesses of southwest Tennessee of an appalling battle costing 23,000 casualties, most of them during a single day. It was more than had resulted from the entire American Revolution. As author Winston Groom reveals in this dramatic, heart-rending account, the Battle of Shiloh would single-handedly change the psyche of the military, politicians, and American people—North and South—about what they had unleashed by creating a Civil War.
