The Grace of Dogs: A Boy, a Black Lab, and a Father’s Search for the Canine Soul
Penguin Random House (June 2017)
Andrew Root paints a vivid picture of the dog-human connection through history and describes why it’s often the wagging of the pooch at the door that reminds us best that we are worthy of love and created to share love. Root draws on biology, history, theology, cognitive ethology (the study of animal minds), paleontology, and a wealth of personal stories to trace how humans and dogs have so often helped each other—emotionally and even spiritually—to become more fully ourselves.
