  • The main character (Lincoln Ferris) is a man to whom life has dealt a very sorry hand of cards. Poverty, loneliness, a frustrated and distant father, a mother who is nowhere in sight. He turns to drink to ease the pain of life after he is left on his own with a failing dirt farm (more like a dust farm). A collie dog who falls from a speeding car is nursed back to health from cuts and a broken leg by Ferris. The dog adopts his savior for his own Master and worships the man as only a dog can do; until Ferris comes home one night drunk and abusive. The dog is afraid of his Master now and Ferris, afraid of returning to his old alone-ness and loneness, decides to turn away from drink for the love of his dog. He turns his life around, finally turns a profit on his farm, and gradually earns the respect of the whole town (and a high-minded local girl as well) in spite of his uneducated mountain man manners. The girl is deathly afraid of dogs and their engagement is nearly broken, but the amazing collie saves the little sister of the heroine from being killed by a speeding car. There is a fantastic plot twist at the end that brought tears to this reader's eyes and helped provide a very satisfying conclusion to the tale. I've no doubt I'll be reading this again!!!

  • I've selected several free books for my Kindle and this one was the most satisfying, but I am quite a dog lover so the topic was a good one!

    This was really more of a short story and "novella" is even stretching it. I read the whole thing in the space of an hour or so.

    Even so, I enjoyed it enough to think of coming and writing a review. While the language is old and the plot predictable, I loved the character of the dog Chum described in this book, and I liked the ending.

    The story is of a man who finds a dog with a broken leg and through the course of getting to know such a fine dog, decides he needs to be a better man. I loved the premise of the dog-human bond bringing out the best in people and the end gave me a nice little laugh, which I should have expected but even so, I found this book worthwhile.

  • Albert Payson Terhune has been one of my favorite authors since I was about 8 years old. I am now 63 and the love has never diminished. He write beautiful, heartfelt books about dogs. I have nearly every book he has ever written, and look forward to passing them down to my grandson.

  • This is another book by Terhune that I never had the chance to read until I found it here free for the Kindle. Defiantly a good read I was crying by the end of the book not because of a horridly sad ending but because of the amazingly happy ending. If anyone has ever owned a dog in their life be it a purebred or a stray that adopted you off the streets you will love this story. It can easily be read in one day.

    I recommend this book as a great bedtime read for kids of an enjoyable one day read for an adult.

    Warning: There is mention of alcohol consumption at the beginning of the book but it gets better.

  • As a kid, I read and had a collection of Albert Payson Terhune collie books.
    As an adult, I find that rereading his books brings back lots of good childhood memories. Collies are very special dogs, so I loved "His Dogs".

  • Love the story but a little hard to read for me.

  • The writing of Terhune creates vivid images in the minds eye as it entangles the reader in the tale. Make no mistake; once you begin the journey on which this work takes you, you will be unable to exit until completed.

  • Great for dog lovers.
