Albert Payson Terhune's story of Bruce, the collie, who starts out life as an ugly, ungainly type and grows up not only beautiful, but incredibly smart. Bruce protects The Mistress from evildoers and becomes a decorated war hero (WWI) before returning to The Home Place for a leisurely retirement amid the lovely trees and lakes.
Bruce's story is told from the dog's perspective as well as the Master's. We join in the adventures as well as share in a few sorrows. One of Terhune's best that will bring a smile as well as a tear.
