    Book details

Excerpt: ...mouth flew wide open. "Won't you go down to the paddock, dear," hastily interposed the Mistress, "and see if the sheep are all right? Take Lad along with you." Lad, alone of all The Place's dogs, had the run of the house, night and day, of the sacred dining-room. During the rest of that day he did not avail himself of his high privilege. He kept out of the way

Albert Payson Terhune was born in New Jersey in 1872. After receiving a bachelor of arts degree from Columbia University, he worked as a reporter for the Evening World from 1894 to 1914. Terhune was a breeder of collies and wrote a number of books based on his own dog Lad.

    an old fashioned book for people who like a true to life story complete with all the highs and lows. lots of situations which encourage the reader to consider another's point of view in a thoughtful way. Not an hysterical book screaming at you to become dramtical on anyone's behalf. a good story to encourage younger able readers to broaden their thinking of the world generally without the need for tedious "youth speak"

    My mother had this book as a child in the 1940s and gave it to me to read as a child I loved it and loved lad and cried and cried at parts of the book. In turn I read it to my elder daughter a few years back who also loved it. It's not fabulous fiction, but it is a fantastic story - about an amazing dog and is well worth a read.

    I was very glad to see this book on kindle as I have loved it since I was a child. The story of Lad, Lady and the Place inspired me to love collies and to own them later when I was old enough. A classic and I hope many more generations will come to enjoy the adventures of Lad, The Master and The Mistress.
