This book is an absolute delight for anyone who loves dogs. The author/photographer travelled Australia to discover women with doggie tales to tell. Outback women, city-dwelling women, elderly women, active women, terminally ill women and their beloved dogs. Dogs of all description. Huge dogs, miniature dogs, pure-bred dogs, mongrel dogs. The stories of these women and their faithful companions are inspiring, moving, happy, intriguing, well-told and beautifully photographed in brilliant colour. The book itself is stunningly presented with dust cover that opens up to make a delightful wall picture while the hard cover is adorned with the same lovely illustations as the dust cover. The pages of rich, glossy paper do justice to the fine photos, the page setting out is attractive and the print very readable. I thoroughly recommend this delightful book.
