Welcome to Owney s second book, a book that hopes to give his many fans a wider view of his life as the most traveled dog in America , miles in Rail Post Offices RPO What we don t know about Owney, is exactly where he went and who he met on each trip The amazing part of his story is that Owney traveled to all these places alone He rode on mail trains from city to city, and inside a city, on any mail wagon by himself So, this means Owney had a life, friends and adventures that were not written down Because he lived and traveled in a different time he lived in a world that was different, generous, and easier than the world we live in now In a way, we can think of him as a dog who has come to tell us about this past world yet in this book, it s as if one of us were traveling along with him out of sight, watching this remarkable dog make friends and have adventures none of us could even dream ofHave fun as you travel along with Owney in his world

    A very long text, but an excellent story True story of Owney, the homeless dog who finds a home with the US Postal Service and travels around the world.

    I got this as a gift and it was a cute story about a dog who apparently was real and did travel with the U.S Postal Service in the late 1800s I liked the pictures but found the text to be kind of hard to follow sometimes This is something you d need a lot of background knowledge for in order to really understand But definitely cute

    Owney is back in this tale of his adventures mostly fiction based on facts Not as much fun as the first book, too much print and not enough pictures.

    A cute book, but a little wordy for kids.
