Recommended for: people travelling in Alaska
Read in August, 2008

The perfect family dog transforms into the perfect feral dog through a series of trials (which were all executed perfectly). I totally get that the wild/natural side has its aesthetic, but this is a little bit overboard. I felt like Mr. London wouldn't have liked me much because I occasionally make mistakes. On the bright side, I read this one while in Alaska, between stops at sledding kennels. It was the perfect book for that environment
