This is a wonderful little book about animal communication, first published in 1954. A friend let me borrow it and I was smitten!
It is written by an animal caretaker who is caring for a movie star dog named Strongheart while the owners travel. Boone begins to realize that this dog has opinions and thoughts of his own and wants to be treated equally.
It will surely change your view about animals and make you realize that they are equal beings in their own right. More spiritual than most books of this kind yet it does give you directions to connect telepathically with your animal friends or animals in general. A must read.
