Cold Noses and Warm Hearts

Product Code: BOOKS022

When originally published in 1959, this marvelous collection of dog stories compiled by the late humorist Corey Ford was an immediate bestseller.

For his edition, Ford selected pieces written by his friends and contemporaries whose names appeared on the mastheads of The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Life, and Colliers.

The names read like a Who's Who of humor: Thurber, Benchley. Wodehouse, White, Woollcott, Marquis.

Ford also provided balance with stories from Steinbeck, Lardner, Lawrence and others. including his own superbly poignant, classic short, "The Road to Tinkhamtown," presented here in its original version.

Laurie Morrow, in this revised collection, has retained these writers and authors while omitting those whose work didn't "travel as exceedingly well through time."

In their place she includes engaging stories of a more serious bent by both famed and newer writers.

These focus on working dogs that are also companions and helpmates.

All the stories in Cold Noses and Warm Hearts share the same theme, whether underscored by humor or deep emotion: the strong, enigmatic bond between dog and master.
