While visiting Australia, Louis de Bernieres heard the legend of Red Dog and decided to do some research on this extraordinary story.

The result is an utterly charming tale of an amazing dog with places to go and people to see. Red Dog will delight readers and animal lovers of all ages.This book inspired the film, Red Dog, which has gone on to become one of Australia's highest grossing films of the past few decades.
