by Susan Orlean
Corporal Lee Duncan, once an orphan, discovered fellow castoff Rin Tin Tin on a World War I battlefield in 1918 and brought him back to America, where he made the dog a Hollywood icon that still resonates deeply. Blending comprehensive research with penetrating thought into the meanings of the myths we create, Susan Orlean (The Orchid Thief) expertly expounds on the German shepherd's rise as well as the ascendance of entertainment and celebrity in American culture.
