Все о книге Travels With Macy
Bruce Fogle is the resident vet on Radio 2's Jeremy Vine show and has written columns for the Telegraph amongst many others. He and Macy, a Golden Retriever, are looking forward to embarking on her first bookshop tour!
After a thirty-year career as a high profile vet, columnist, presenter and author Bruce Fogle - the UK's bestselling cat & dog writer - decided to leave urban Britain and take a journey with his dog Macy. Travelling in the footsteps of the great American novelist John Steinbeck, who published Travels with Charley - his standard poodle - in the '60s, Fogle set off in search of the North America of his childhood. Would he, after all this time, be able to work out whether home meant the UK or America? Would he find the welcoming, peaceful backwaters of his youth unchanged?
Together with Macy, Fogle retraced Steinbeck's steps through the length of North America, meeting people, cadging meals, and indulging in some of the world's best dog-walking territory. What Bruce found in a changing America surprised and delighted him. What Macy found (thousands of miles of unspoilt wilderness) made her very happy. And hungry. An entertaining and evocative journey in the company of a very, very happy dog.

"Inspired by John Steinbeck's journey across America with his poodle Charlie...the book is a delightful tale of a transatlantic adventure which will leave you with an urgent desire to hug any dogs you encounter"

"Funny, feel-good travelogue"
