Jon Katz has written a number of books about dogs which have garnered great reviews. Finally, I have taken the time to read one of them. Rose in a Storm is told from the third person, mainly Rose’s point of view. As we see how she thinks and responds to a major crisis on her farm, a massive snow storm, we fall in love with this faithful dog. The intelligence of the border collie breed is never doubted, and Jon Katz wants us to imagine how this ‘working dog’ perceives and faces such a huge threat to her world. Rose in a Storm is a wonderful story and I look forward to reading Katzs’ other non-fiction animal stories.
