Over the years, Tom Wilson has owned seven wonderful dogs. Each one brought its own gift--comfort when Tom felt life's deepest wound, or purpose when it was time to move ahead. Bre'er, the first, was a childhood friend. Tag was a mystery. Laird was an aristocrat, Dawn a healer, Victor knew how to take charge, and Nell knew no strangers. Finally there was Una, the patient friend who was to usher in the future.
The Seventh One shares with readers author Elizabeth Yates' special love of dogs and their remarkable ability to move with and respond to the needs of human beings. With extraordinary empathy, she brings out the spirit and unique personality of each dog. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
