Will buck survive? Can he get rescued? Will he go home to his family or stay in the wilderness?
I especially love this travel book because I am dog lover and no one is loyal like dog. This story is about Dog called buck but inside this it is more related with human nature and situations that can also come in human’s life. His story teaches me that all day is not same. So in that situation how can we face it or survive it.
In this story buck leaving a luxurious life and suddenly he get pulled into worst situation. When he meet with other dog and human he realized and learns about life facts.
But the best part of this travel book buck doesn’t give up in any situation. He is always ready to learn and deal with new things. This travel story realized that if dog can do such things to survive in bad conditions they why not humans.
I would suggest read this travel book because while you reading this travel book buck is relatable to any character that any person can understand the struggle of buck goes through. Its relatable to anger, fear and emotions.
