From the Publisher
Annotation Newbury Award-winning author Cynthia Kadohata shares a heartbreaking story based in reality. A prize German shepherd, Cracker was bred for shows, but when she broke her leg, she was forced to leave Willie, a devoted little boy, and go to Vietnam as part of a military canine unit to sniff out bombs. Rick is her new partner, and the pair becomes inseparable. The story is told from all three points of view, including Cracker's.
Editors Note Trained to sniff out bombs and traps, Cracker the German Shepherd is prepared for action in Vietnam, but when she is teamed up with Rick, a young man whose family doubts he can handle infantry life, the new soldier must find a way to build trust between the two so that they can do their jobs well and make it back alive. Reprint.
