Bernie is a book for all
ages.  It has become very popular in India
and the SAARC countries bordering India.  Finally, the novel has become available

through First Books.

Lost and abandoned dogs on a
vacation island off the coast of Maine, discover the meanings and answers to life through Wolf, an
aged Saint Bernard.  He shares his
knowledge and philosophies with Bernie, a young black Labrador retriever, and
other canines.  Wolf acquires his
scholarly brilliance from listening for all of his 18 years, to his master, an
English college professor reading from the classics, the Bible, history and
other valuable works.

Bernie proves to be a motivated
student who applies and matures under the tutelage of his Saint Bernard mentor.  The lessons Bernie acquired are eventually
applied in dealing with life’s predicaments. 
As in life, youth must be served and Bernie replaces Wolf as the able
leader of their pack which also includes a female poodle, Alyce,
and Springer Spaniel, Marion.  Together the pack survive
on the isolated island until they are finally rescued.

All readers will profit from the
lessons learned from these canines..
