Initially believing Gray Dawn to be a hopeless case, the Master plans to sell the dog to another breeder despite his wife's protestations. But, after enacting a deed of great courage, Gray Dawn is spared at the last moment and wins the affection and respect of his master. A wonderfully heart-warming tale, this book will not disappoint fans of Terhune’s delightful fiction and constitutes a must-have for any dog-lover.
