Red Dog by Louis de Bernieres
This novellette was based on the true story about the legendary red dog, who roamed the Pilbra region of Australia in the 1970s. As a child in the 70s, living in the Pilbra, I dont remember this legend, but my parents do.
This is such a fabulous read. I finished reading it in an airport and New Zealand and I was totally bawling my eyes out. The looks I go, I musta looked like a psycho !!
Totally recommend it
