Reviews

"outstanding"--The Midwest Book Review; "one of the most detailed, elaborate and curious dog books I have had the privilege to read in a very long time. It is not a single-focus breed book, neither is it a trumped-up recitation of old-school history lessons, or a name-dropper's Who's Who. Rather, imagine a book for an easy chair and rainy day...a story that you will fly through the first time, but return to over and over, to uncover even more nuggets of treasure that continue to entice long after they have been first enjoyed"--The Sighthound Magazine; "breathing life into this diverse group of enthusiasts...and their salukis...is the work of this well-researched volume. It is a fascinating journey from the time the sun never set on the British Empire to the darkness of World War II. The photographs are wonderful as well."--Jane Waldron Grutz, Saudi Aramco World; "Duggan...has done so thorough and readable a job as to render any further book on the subject unnecessary. Populated by dozens of compelling characters, including T. E. Lawrence (the enigmatic Lawrence of Arabia), Saluki is the product of 14 years of research made vivid by the author's skills as a storyteller"--AKC Gazette; "a masterful work and I am tremendously impressed with the amount of research that went into it"--George H.V. Cecil, Chairman, Biltmore Farms LLC; "a welcome addition...by chronicling their [British officers] stories you add to the broader picture of British activity in the Middle East"--Zahra Dickson Freeth, author of Kuwait Was My Home
