Though he searches frantically for Kateyand 8212;and she for himand 8212;Nelson canand 8217;t seem to find his way home, and he soon realizes that if heand 8217;s ever to see his great love again, he must make his way on his own and try to survive in the wild. For a time he rides shotgun with a truck driver named Thatcher, then he lives in the woods with a pack of wolves. I never thought of it that way. For a time he rides shotgun with a truck driver named Thatcher, then he lives in the woods with a pack of wolves. The idea crystallized when I started seeing many newspaper articles about lost dogs reunited with their owners thanks to chip technology. The story was good, although not totally believable, but it is fiction so it was expected. A wise and heartwarming first novel about families, love lost and found, and a scrappy three-legged dog who is trying to find his way back home as Christmas approaches.

Born under a sparkling crescent moon, Nelson is a bright-eyed, inquisitive half beagle, half poodle. In the tradition of The Art of Racing in the Rain and The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, Roam is an unforgettable tale of love lost and found, the trials that test families, and an affirmation that no matter how far or how long you may travel, there's always a place you can call home. At first, I was disappointed to find that this novel had the same narrator as another book that I did not enjoy, Merle's Door. Writing also necessitates a great deal more research. Anderson was accustomed to seeing two or three pups in a poodle litter. How could it be any other way, though? They are very close, and Milan still lets Chicky lick her stomach like she did when she was a baby.

Roam (with embedded audio) eBook by Alan Lazar

Told from the point of view of the dog, this is the story of Nelson, a beagle-poodle mix and his life from puppy-hood through a series of adventures that, well, let's just say that's what the tissues are for. While I liked the travel plot and the main character of the little scrappy Nelson, I thought the writing style was just god-awful clumsy and obvious. I wasn't looking for an explanation or any insight into canine behavior. For a time he rides shotgun with a truck driver named Thatcher, then he lives in the woods with a pack of wolves. This book was won through goodreads first reads.

A box and a half of tissues later, I finished the book on a quiet afternoon while the boss was out. But also, deep from within the soil in which it grew,the grass held sometimes murky hints about summers past, and winters from long ago, about the creatures that had lived and died in the New Hampshire county where Nelson was born. Told largely from his point of view, we follow him on his journey through life. The ending while predictable was satisfying. Born under a sparkling crescent moon, Nelson is a bright-eyed, inquisitive half beagle, half poodle. An amorous beagle exploits a fence hole, and a sweet woman who breeds beagles and poodles ends up with mutts to sell.

I enjoyed following his scent guided decision making, his love of all things human food, and his joy of grass! She takes him home to New York.

He lives with Katey and Don, newlyweds whose marriage is straining under the pressures of domesticity, but Katey's devotion to Nelson buoys the pup even as he worries his home may be falling apart.
