This is a classic story of man's cruelty written from a dog's perspective. An enjoyable book while still a very deep novel on several levels. This book will challenge your concepts of established fact. When two canines escape from an animal research center the horrors that they have been exposed to are brought to light. A tragic tale but one that everyone should read. Run with Snitter and Rowf on their incredible journey to ultimate peace. This book will change your concept of animals forever. This is one of those books you must read before you die. It was required reading when I was in school and it is a book I have reread several times and will never forget. This book compares with Watership Down. A great book for young adults or mature readers.
