A novel about the bond between a farmer and his black-and-white border collie that James Herriot called "beautiful [and] as gripping as any thriller." On Christmas Day, Virginia livestock farmer Lewis Burkholder and Nop, his black-and-white border collie, go out to feed the sheep. But the holiday is shattered when Nop fails to return home. Stolen by two hardened criminals who see in the young stock dog a $300 payday, Nop suffers abuse and brutality as he courageously adapts to his new life, which holds no shortage of surprises. At the same time, Lewis refuses to believe that his beloved dog is gone for good. His determination to be reunited with Nop—and Nop's own unswerving loyalty—reveals the depth and strength of the bond that can exist between humans and dogs.
