«Una storia che ha toccato il cuore di milioni di persone.» National Geographic
Quando Ben Moon si è tra sferito dal Midwest all’Oregon, non aveva programmato di prendere un cane. Ma quando i suoi occhi hanno incrociato lo sguardo di un cucciolo in un canile, Ben ha avvertito un’intesa immediata, e l’amicizia con Denali è sbocciata. Insieme hanno attraversato l’America occidentale e insieme hanno vissuto anni avventurosi e bellissimi. Ma, all’età di ventinove anni, Ben si è ammalato di un tumore e ha dovuto combattere una durissima battaglia: durante quei mesi, Denali non si è mosso dal suo fianco, fino a quando non ha visto il suo amico riprendersi e, insieme, sono di nuovo partiti all’avventura fra le onde dell’oceano da cavalcare con il surf e le pareti delle montagne da scalare. Purtroppo, dopo alcuni anni, è stato Denali ad ammalarsi e Ben gli è stato accanto fino all’ultimo, restituendo al suo amico tutto il conforto che aveva ricevuto da lui. Storia di un cane e dell’uomo a cui ha cambiato la vita è il racconto di un’amicizia fortissima, che ha segnato la vita di un uomo e del suo cane, e che mostra la forza dell’amore che siamo in grado di dare e di ricevere quando abbiamo un amico dalla nostra parte.

Beware !!! Reading this did bring me to tears! This is a moving true story of a man and his husky-pit bull cross friend, Denali. Ben Moon is an adventurer and lives a very active life, surfing, rock climbing and adventure photography. He and Denali lived a ‘dirtbag’ lifestyle, camping near Ben’s clim Leggi tutto
This book is a very personal and touching story of Ben Moon's life that he shared with Denali (His dog). They had a very active and adventurous life and were always together. It covers Ben's divorce and his battle with colorectal cancer. His struggles with learning how to live with a colostomy bag an Leggi tutto
I have mixed feelings about this book. The end of it was great because that’s when I felt he really started writing about his relationship with his dog. Before that, it’s mostly about different stages of his life with brief mentions of Denali. I expected this book to be more of a story of their rela Leggi tutto
This book wasn't what I wanted it to be, which is to say that the book jacket offers a description of a man and his dog and their fights against cancer. Sure, that's covered, but it is also about the man's depression, his decision to live out of a car (then van) for years. His divorce and his ex wif Leggi tutto
This was a really disappointing read. I picked this up the day after putting my 15 year old dog to sleep. I thought I would read about a man and his dog. Instead, this book felt like a self-centered portrayal of the author’s life with a few side notes of his dog. The author comes across as very “woe Leggi tutto
I picked the book up as a periodic reminder to myself that "we don't deserve dogs," which it did do very well. It revolves around the author's dog's camaraderie through his survival and recovery from cancer and its treatments, bold life choices, and relationship struggles. There were points where th Leggi tutto
Ben Moon was in his mid-20s, living near the mountains, and trying to save his crumbling marriage. This was never the life he wanted, but he began building his new life around climbing, surfing, and photography. That's when he knew he needed a new companion, a dog. Denali was just a few weeks old wh Leggi tutto
Ben obviously loved his dog very, very much, which was very sweet. It sounds like a pretty fun life for an active dog - getting to travel and be outdoors so much, and being with his person nearly every day. To be clear though, that's not really what this book is about -- it's not about a friendship
