The Tale of Rescue is a sweet and moving story about a herding dog living in Ohio. This dog herds cattle and loves it. It is her life. One day, a family from Florida decides to go on vacation near the dog’s home. They go for a walk, and a blizzard suddenly blows up. The herding dog hears their cries and sets off to rescue them. Will the dog make it? Will the family survive and make it to shelter? Only by reading this book will you find out the answers.
This book is an excellent choice for more reluctant readers. It is written for any age, comprehensible even for an eight year old, yet complex enough that an eighteen year old would enjoy it. The author does a beautiful job of using descriptive words, allowing the reader to be transported into the story. It is written such that one would easily believe that this story is true. Appropriately, the climax is slightly emotional and urges the reader to love dogs more than before. Any dog lover will adore this book. I highly recommend it.
