A very enjoyable book. It tells the life story of a famous West Australian character, Red Dog. A dog who lives his own life, lives with people and loves them but is not owned by them. A lovable rogue.

What impressed me was LdB's ability, as a non Australian, to write so effectively in the Australian voice. There's a little glossary in the back of the book for those who don't know what a "swag" is etc. The Aussie lingo was used appropriately and rang true throughout.

I could easily have read more.
