David Rosenfelt is the author of the popular Andy Carpenter mystery series, and has also established the Tara Foundation, a dog rescue group that has rescued and placed over 3,000 dogs. His latest book Dogtripping will be published July 23.
“An uplifting story that exemplifies the compassion and dedication which are at the heart of the selflessness, serious work, and vital importance of rescue, told with humor and a refreshing sense of self-deprecation.”—Larry Levin, New York Times bestselling author of Oogy: The Dog Only A Family Could Love
“When mystery writer David Rosenfelt and his family moved from Southern California to Maine, he thought he had prepared for everything. They had mapped the route, brought three GPSs for backup, as well as refrigerators full of food, and stoves and microwaves on which to cook them. But traveling with twenty-five dogs turned out to be a bigger ordeal than he anticipated, despite the RVs, the extra kibble, volunteers (including a few readers), and camping equipment. Rosenfelt recounts the adventure of moving his animal companions across the United States with humor and warmth, and tells the tale of how he and his wife became passionate foster parents for rescue dogs, culminating in the creation of the Tara Foundation and successfully placing several thousand dogs with loving families.
David Rosenfelt’s Dogtripping is moving and funny account of a cross-country move from California to Maine, and the beginnings of a dog rescue foundation.”- publisher description
“Fans of the Carpenter novels will recognize the author’s familiar writing style: relaxed and lightly funny, but serious when the moment calls for it…Spirited and absolutely absorbing reading for fans of canine capers—both fictional and otherwise.”— David Pitt, Booklist
