The Story of Rose

Have you bought this book yet?  What are you waiting for?  I purchased it yesterday and looking forward to reading it and you can be sure that a review will be coming soon on  The Story of Rose – A Man and His Dog. A few times on this blog, I have spotlighted Jon Kat’z books and how much fun they are to read. One of the giveaways was even a copy of The Dogs of Bedlam Farm by Jon Kat’z book and a small bag of toys. Katz was spotlighted with his book, Rose in a Storm during his virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book.

Read Chapter 1 of Rose in a Storm.

Katz’s adventures on the farm are funny and sad, but always heartfelt. He writes in a comfortable way and you get the feeling that you would be most welcome to visit if you showed up at his farm. One of the points of advice given to writers is to be always looking for opportunities and material they can put in their novels. Katz certainly has an endless supply of story ideas between his dogs and farm animals.

About The Story of Rose:  A Man and His Dog

From the acclaimed author of A Good Dog, Dog Days, and Going Home comes this eBook original—a poignant memoir that celebrates Jon Katz’s beloved border collie, Rose, and their transformative years together on Bedlam Farm.
“I like to say you get the dog you need,” Jon Katz writes, “and I don’t think any human ever needed a dog more than I needed Rose in the fall of 2003.” That year, Katz embarked on a quixotic quest, moving from the suburbs of New Jersey to a sprawling farm in upstate New York to pursue his dream of becoming a writer. And by his side was Rose, his unswervingly loyal and unflappable new dog.

Whether herding sheep on the rolling hillsides, rounding up the neighbors’ stray cows, or rescuing lambs on a freezing winter night, Rose had a nimble mind and a great love for work. Never wanting to be coddled, she watched over Bedlam Farm with singular focus and efficiency, protecting Katz and his menagerie from wild coyotes and menacing storms. Yet Rose saved Katz in more ways than he ever imagined. As he struggled to manage the farm’s daily dramas—and continued to seek his true sense of purpose—Rose connected him to his deeper humanity and a more authentic life.

With warmth, insight, and emotional honesty, Jon Katz has written a joyful remembrance of a one-of-a-kind dog. The Story of Rose reaffirms the profound bond people share with their pets, and the ways that animals indelibly shape our lives.

“Jon Katz understands dogs as few others do, intuitively and unburdened by sentimentality. . . . With wisdom and grace, he unlocks the canine soul and the complicated wonders that lie within and offers powerful insights.”—John Grogan, author of Marley & Me
Includes moving excerpts from Going Home, and from Jon Katz’s upcoming short-story collection, Dancing Dogs.
