Walks with Sierra: The Story of an Old Soul is the memoir of a stray.
While the first of the winter storms was preparing to unleash biting winds and a blanket of snow, an old dog was abandoned. Left by the roadside to die, he somehow gathered the strength to make his way to a farm where he was taken in and given a name.
Beautiful photographs and lyrical vignettes chronicle what was to be the last year of his life. Lingering and rich impressions of the land, the unexpected gift of a deep and enduring friendship, and the insights of a sage and soulful being ensure that this special dog and his story will both be long remembered.
This book is a wonderful gift for anyone who has ever loved or lost a dog.
"Walks with Sierra encompasses what many of us have felt but could never put into words. It celebrates the bond between a human and a dog, one that can reach so deep. The simple beauty of the author's words lets you in; you feel everything - the joys, the pain and the love.
Walks with Sierra is not a singular experience. This book is meant to be shared. It conveys why loving an older dog is so rewarding, not just a gift to the dog, but a gift to the human. It begs the question who rescued whom."
