Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search-and-Rescue Dog Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search-and-Rescue Dog

by Susannah Charleson

Book Reviews

"A brilliantly written book that should be on every dog lover's bed stand. Charleson's use of language is so rich I'm not sure if I want to read her book or eat it."
--Patricia B. McConnell, author of The Other End of the Leash

"Riveting . . . All dog lovers should read this book."
--Temple Grandin, author of Animals Make Us Human

"The transformation of Puzzle the cuddly pup into Puzzle the professional search-and-rescue dog would be story enough, but Susannah Charleson gives us far more. With lean, lovely prose she takes us on a clear-eyed, compassionate journey into a mysterious world in which every story begins as a ghost story."
 --Michael Perry, author of Population: 485

"A fascinating woman has written eloquently about her fascinating colleague and the critically important search-and-rescue work that these two faced together."
--Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of The Hidden Life of Dogs

"This book is a fantastic discovery! Dog and human decipher each other's language and behavior to solve the mystery of the missing, and find their bonds of love, trust and friendship grow. I loved this book."
--Lynne Cox, author of Swimming to Antarctica and Grayson

"Heartwarming, heartachingly poignant, and riveting from page one. Puzzle had me from her first joyous wroo!"
--Hallie Ephron, author of Never Tell a Lie

"Wonderful writing about dogs and plenty of powerful, compassionate writing about the community of mankind."
--Rick Bass, author of Colter
