From the Publisher:

If you drink coffee at the Keller Cafe you may hear discourse on the man who "talks to dogs." Bill Medcalf is such a man, and "RETRIEVE" is a book that tells how it is done. Bill has been teaching others to train their own dogs for years, stressing common sense and no harsh methods.

This book is about dog training, of course, but it's more than that. Anecdotes scattered throughout lend humor to the book, and show the attitudes and emotions that make sunrise in a duck blind a special feeling.
