Pick-up Dogs How Two Rescue Dogs Save the West from Being Won

Pick-up Dogs

Pick-Up Dogs is an adventure road trip book about the healing powers of dogs. Following two rescue dogs and their journeys not only around the great wilderness of the western United States but down the hallways of psychiatric facilities and rehabilitation and assisted living centers, Pick-Up Dogs looks at the concepts of nature and healing through the prism of the iconic American road trip. The tales collected in this volume tell stories about dogs’ abilities to pick us up when we’re down and to heal us by bringing us into communion with nature and restoring our ability to relate to the world.
