Summary
This is the story of a dog's journey back to her family. Sophie Tucker, a three-year-old Australian blue heeler, goes overboard into the predator infested waters of the Great Barrier Reef, and Sophie's heartbroken family has given her up for lost; little do they know that Sophie swam six miles to an isolated nature preserve called St. Bees, where she survived unassisted for five months by living off the land. The story of her survival and rescue is nothing short of miraculous. The author, a journalist into Sophie's story and re-creates the accident and Sophie's improbable journey. She tells the story from the perspectives of Sophie, her family, and the scientists on St. Bees who found her. Interwoven with research on the emotional lives of animals and interviews with animal experts, including Temple Grandin, Sophie offers undeniable proof about the unbreakable animal-human bond. It is a story of the resilience of the human and animal spirit
