Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

YA-Coping with the accidental death of her husband and young child, Penny competes in the Border collie trials throughout the nation. Talented Hope, son of Nop (Nop's Trials [Lyons & Burford, 1992]), learns from experience and does better and better, winning prize money and prestige. McCaig's love of dogs and this breed is shown in details of competition and the relationship between the animal and the owner/ trainer. A delightful diversion occurs when he shows what the dogs are thinking or saying about their owners or their surroundings. A sense of adventure is maintained as Penny takes jobs to earn money or competes with Hope. As her mother and father have an important role in the story, YAs will see that parents continue to participate in the lives of their adult children. A short, easy-to-read novel with lots of dialogue.

From Booklist

McCaig's earlier novel, Nop's Trials (1992), about "the finest sheepdog in America," was a big success. Hope is a border collie "out of Nop by Kate." Lewis Burkholder, the Virginia farmer who owns Nop, gives young Hope to his daughter Penny when her husband and child are killed; Penny and Hope take to the road. They spend a few months in Texas, helping a rancher named Owen Wright with his lambing. Then they follow the sheepdog circuit, where they take up with Ransome Barlow and his prizewinning dog, Bute. But Penny can't find comfort with either man, or with her parents; the only solace comes from Hope, whom she is turning into a winner. Missing Penny, not understanding why she's left home, Lewis and his wife, Beverly, return to the circuit themselves, traveling across country in their motor home and entering Nop in a few more trials, though he's gotten too old for this kind of thing. This is a heartwarming story--heartwarming but never sentimental. McCaig does well at expressing human emotions, but he does even better writing about the bonds between humans and their dogs. The dogs are characters themselves, with their own language, wisdom, and culture. Mary Ellen Quinn
