From the Back Cover

"Nop's Trials held me in fascinated suspense to the last page. It is poignant, authentic, and beautiful. This story of a man's dedication to his dog is as gripping as any thriller."--James Herriot "An adult novel for animal lovers that does justice to both its human and canine characters . . . with crispness and authenticity."--New York Times Book Review "The best dog book I've read since Jack London's White Fang." --San Diego Union "Destined to become a classic. . . . Anyone who loves dogs should make a beeline for this book."--John Barkham It's Christmas Day when we meet Lewis Burkholder, a West Virginia livestock farmer and sheepdog trainer, and his --talented young border collie, Nop. The usually happy holiday is shattered when Nop is stolen from his owner. Nop's Trials is the story of Nop's fate, the abuse and brutality he suffers, and his incredible resiliency. It's a touching tale of a border collie's undying desire to do his job and serve his master, and it explores the depth of love and devotion that a dog and a human can feel toward each other. This stirring novel of courage and love is a modern classic.
