Review by Publisher Summary 3

Born under a sparkling crescent moon, Nelson is a bright-eyed, inquisitive half beagle, half poodle that lives with Katey and Don. His is a perfect dog's life, but one day, Nelson follows his nose and gets lost.If he is ever to see his great love, Katey, again, Nelson must survive. For a time he rides shotgun with a truck driver named Thatcher, then he lives in the woods with a pack of wolves. A terrible accident takes his hind leg, but Nelson's strength and longing to find Katey keep him alive. Escaping death in a shelter, Nelson grows into an old dog with a cynical eye and a world-weary demeanor, but he maintains his fearless, courageous spirit.More than the story of a dog's incredible journey, Roam is a deeply moving story of the unbreakable bond between humans and their best friends -- and an unforgettable tale of love lost and found, the trials that test families, and an affirmation that there's no place like home.
