Pilot, animal lover, search and rescue volunteer...and now a writer, and a darn good one at that. I was engrossed in her adventures; her work is beautifully descriptive without being too wordy. The author also has an endearing sense of humor which made the book not only a good read but a great read. How can one woman accomplish so many things with so much grace and humor? I don't know, but I do know this is a book I will heartily recommend to my friends and family.

I loved this book - anyone interested in learning about search and rescue with a dog, or just dog training, should read it.

A very readable, interesting look into the lives of the emergency techs whom we hear about and need when extreme incidents happen. The writer has a warmth to her and she obviously loves animals, dogs included, and is proud of the outstanding work she and they do.

Do you remember the last time you saw a search and rescue dog during a disaster? Did you know that most of these teams are strictly made up of volunteers who spend years training to do this difficult and dangerous work? Charleson introduces us to this world as she trains her Golden Retriever puppy "Puzzle" to work with Dallas' elite Metro Area Rescue K9 unit. A fascinating enjoyable read full of humor and adventure that any dog lover must read!

Thought this was going to be a really good book, but it's very slow. She diregess a lot about things that don't have much to do with search and rescue. Wanted to know more about the searching and less about her.
