September 11, 2001 began as a normal day for Michael Hingson and his seeing-eye dog Roselle. With the help of his trusted companion, he navigated the bustling streets of New York City and began the workday at his office in Tower One of the World Trade Center. However, time would prove September 11, 2001 to be anything but a normal day.
In Thunder Dog, Michael shares his harrowing escape from the World Trade Center attacks from the unique perspective of a legally blind man. Trusting in Roselle's instincts and guidance, both dog and master survived that day. Michael also offers his outlook on living blind in a sighted society and how perseverance and hope can help us overcome obstacles and disability. Thunder Dog is an inspiring read for dog lovers or anyone facing a challenge, in need of faith, or a boost of courage.
