From the book jacket text:
Thor is the human, heartwarming story of a remarkable German shepherd's first years. It chronicles, with respect and affection, the noble, heroic world of Thor's ancestors, his immense capacity for love, his zest, his growing maturity, and what the author calls his "Olympian serenity."

David Douglas Duncan, one of the world's greatest photographers, is the author of twenty books, with sales worldwide of over two million copies. He says that "perhaps this simple story of discovery and love is my favorite."

“The odyssey of Thor embraces just about every emotion available to we human beings — and the human soul.”
