One of the most acclaimed nonfiction books of 2011, Susan Orlean’sNew York TimesbestsellerRin Tin Tinis “an unforgettable book about the mutual devotion between one man and one dog” (The Wall Street Journal).Rin Tin Tin’s journey from orphaned puppy to movie star and international icon begins on a World War I battlefield, when an American soldier, Lee Duncan, discovered the newborn German shepherd in the ruins of a bombed-out dog kennel. Back in California, the dog’s athleticism and acting ability drew the attention of Warner Bros and over the next ten years, Rinty starred in twenty-three blockbuster silent films that made him the most famous dog in the world. During the decades that followed, Rinty and his descendants rose and fell with the times, making a tumultuous journey from silent films to talkies, from black-and-white to color, from radio programs to one of the most popular television shows of the baby boom era,The Adventures of Rin-Tin-Tin.     Spanning ninety years, this “enormously satisfying story about a dog and the man who believed in him” (USA TODAY) is an irresistible blend of history, human interest, and masterful storytelling—a dazzling celebration of a great American dog by one of our most gifted writers.
