Publisher's Summary

For years Greg Mahle struggled to keep the last of his family-run restaurants afloat in Ohio. When it finally closed, he was broke and unsure what to do next. Then a stranded vanload of puppies changed his life forever.
Join journalist Peter Zheutlin as he travels with Greg from Ohio to the Gulf Coast on his Rescue Road Trips to bring hard-luck dogs from the Deep South to loving "forever families" up north, with the help of many selfless volunteers along the way. From Houston's impoverished Fifth Ward - where thousands of strays roam the streets - and high-kill shelters in Louisiana to joyous scenes of adopters embracing their new pups in the Northeast, Rescue Road is full of heart: an inspiring story about the unique bond between dogs and humans and how going the extra mile can make a life-changing difference for these loyal canines - and for us all.

Great material!

Would you consider the audio edition of Rescue Road to be better than the print version?

No, not necessarily. It was nice to have a "voice" but the narrator was a bit slow at times.

What did you like best about this story?

I love dogs and volunteer with a rescue myself. The stories make you cry in pain and in joy.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrator was a bit slow at times.
