Product Description:

When the author of "Nop's Trials," one of America's best-loved dog books, searches Scotland for a Border Collie, the result is both a vivid history of an astonishing breed and an exploration of the ancient, extraordinary pact between man and dog.

From the Back Cover:

There is a Scottish saying: "There is no good flock without a good shepherd, and there is no good shepherd without a good dog." Eminent Dogs, Dangerous Men is the story of Donald McCaig's search through rural Scotland for just the right sheepdog to bring back to his farm in America. Beyond the vivid stories of his Scottish travels, McCaig delves into the mysterious pact between dog and man, which involves trust and deep communication. Traveling from town to town to competitions and farms, meeting shepherds and trainers, McCaig introduces us to unforgettable animal and human characters. This is a book not only for dog lovers, but for anyone interest in the communication and trust between animal and human. (6 X 9, 240 pages, b&w photos)
