Description of this Book

Amazing animal stories that span the centuries come to life in this beautifully written and illustrated book. Some are sweet, some funny, some surprising, but all are emotionally powerful -- the Capitolene geese who saved the Roman empire, Balto the Alaskan sled dog, Smoky the Bear, the passenger pigeon of WWI Cher Ami, and the lastest internet sensation Cristian the lion. A collection such as this comes along only once in a generation, full of heartwarming tales that families will read, re-read, and remember. From the Hardcover edition.
