Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend
by Susan Orlean

You may be familiar with the beloved German Shepard Rin Tin Tin and his numerous heroic roles in film, television and radio, but did you know that he was found in a bombed out dog kennel during the First World War? He was discovered by a young American soldier who grew up in an orphanage and bonded immediately with the puppy. Thus begins a tale of stardom that grew over decades and followed the evolution of entertainment from silent films to color motion pictures and straight into our hearts.
