A Sight to See Nov 12, 2008
Together: A Novel of Shared Vision I found the book to be uplifting and inspiring. I know alot about guide dogs and their ability to assist those who are not sighted, but it is wonderful to read a story that gives so much background and talks about the difficulties both dog and new master have in adjusting to one another. A nice book to read when one is feeling a little down!
Good book, fast shipping Oct 30, 2008
Wonderful touching book. Would highly recommend it to anyone. Gave me an insight into the world of guide dogs and their trainers and owners.
Together ties it together Oct 24, 2008
The book drew my attention because I retired after years as a National Park Ranger and more years as a wilderness specialist, concluding my career working for access to wilderness and the back country for persons with disabilities. We were also "puppy raisers" for Guide Dogs for the Blind. Our best friend has also traveled with us, around the U.S. and abroad, with her dog guide. The story does an excellent service in giving those who have NOT had experience with disability or service animals, exposure to the fantastic love, intelligence, and unlimited promise, of these "best friends". For those learning to adopt to a disability, it also offers not just sentimental "hope", but a very real introduction to how the world will change, NOT end, for those who must adapt. Sullivan and White also show that dog may really be "God" spelled backward. I recommend the book. Having spent years in search and rescue, the two important "drama points" of the book regarding mountaineering also serve as proof that even "experienced" people do some dumb things they should NOT when dealing with the mountain. So even those "able bodied" folks heading for the hills can take away a lesson in what NOT to do.
fun to read Sep 9, 2008
This book had some good tips for dog training and was easy and fun to read.
Wonderful book Aug 12, 2008
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I was especially interested in not only the technology that is available to the blind, but also the different activities they are still able to do. Being "inside" the dog's mind was an interesting perspective. I could almost feel the anguish that both the man and the dog went through, as well as the triumph. I stayed up until 1:30 AM to finish it. I am going to read it again before I pass it on to the next reader.
