    Crocker s book is a reason why I love debut authors and tend to seek them out This book sucked me in almost immediately It is a beautiful story about man s relationship with dog in a harrowing setting I am actually shocked that it was written during the time of the Vietnam War versus the Iraq Afghan War, since the issue of military leadership ordering the destruction of dogs and soldiers not listening and shipping them back to the US thank God is an issue which continues today I loved this Crocker s book is a reason why I love debut authors and tend to seek them out This book sucked me in almost immediately It is a beautiful story about ...
