About Thunder Dog
On September 11, 2001, Michael Hingson and his guide dog Roselle were at work in the World Trade Center. This book tells the story of how they survived. But, it’s much more than that.
You’ll read about Hingson’s journey navigating the world as a blind man from birth. You’ll learn how guide dogs work, how they’re trained, and how they’re matched up with their humans. You’ll also read about Hingson’s experiences with Roselle and the other guide dogs he’s had throughout life.
Thunder Dog is a heart-warming and interesting story for anyone who enjoys memoirs. I learned a lot from this book and found it quite interesting. This is a great book people who enjoy stories of working dogs or are interested in learning about living with a disability. It’s also a great option for anyone interested in personal experiences during 9/11.
