Most Canadians may not know that Alexander MacKenzie was accompanied by a big brown dog on his long journey to the Pacific Coast of Canada. Our Dog, as he was known to his companions, protected the explorer and the Native guides that helped him all along his way. Manson's focus on the role of the Natives, as well as that of the heroic Our Dog, brings new insight to this exploration story.

Ainslie Manson is the author of several inventive historical books for young people, including Just Like New (the tale of a young girl who sends her favorite doll to an English child during World War II) and Baboo (the story of the daughter of Canada's first prime minister, who lived life to the fullest despite her severe disabilities). Ainslie Manson lives in Vancouver.Ann Blades is one of Canada’s leading illustrators. Her distinctive watercolors appear in many children’s books, including A Salmon for Simon, which won the Governor General’s Award for Illustration and the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Award; By the Sea: An Alphabet Book, which won the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Award; and A Dog Came, Too by Ainslie Manson. She is also the author and illustrator of Mary of Mile 18, for which she won the Canadian Library Association’s Book of the Year for Children Award. Ann returned to teaching in 2001 and now teaches kindergarten at an inner-city school in Surrey, British Columbia.

An engaging canine tale. - Horn Book

The clarity of design and economy of detail that Blades brings to her translucent watercolors perfectly suit this attractive historical tale of affection between men and a dog. Likeable, unsentimentalized, and of broad appeal. - Kirkus Reviews
