Starts slow but builds into good story. Love Peter the dog. A harrowing love affair plus dual danger. Melin narrates perfectly.

This is a very sweet love story and Roger Milen is a wonderful narrator. I always love his narrations he is one of the best at Librivox. I would highly recommend some of the other James Oliver Curwood books that he has narrated.
