A Dog

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Noble, gentle, loyal, patient, loving, wise, brave, and fair—Lad is "thoroughbred in body and soul."

This heroic collie never hesitates to protect others from danger—a raging bull, a poisonous snake, freezing waters, scorching flames, and greedy burglars that will stop at nothing to get what they want.

But what happens when Lad has to defend himself from his own kind and fight his fiercer, younger rivals—to the death?

Note: This Townsend Library classic has been carefully edited to be more accessible to today's students. It includes a brief author's biography and an afterword that provides important context about the work.
