A chance encounter on a chilly, rainy day started a heartwarming adventure for a blind dog and a human. This is Rivers’ diary of that adventure; becoming pain free and dealing with his disappointments while learning to interact with humans. Rivers tells of a blind dog’s efforts to overcome his challenges and achieve his destiny. Rivers is a tale of the bond between a dog and a man, of courage, friendship, loyalty and adventure. It is full of positive messages for both young and old. Rivers takes place in that mystical land called Alaska, where sled dog racing is the state sport, dogs are considered athletes, and mushers are their coaches.

Author : Mike Dillingham

Mike Dillingham was born in a blinding snowstorm in New York City. Mike's mom went into labor while Mike's dad, a New York City police officer, was on duty. The fire that night, in the first floor restaurant of the 6-story building where they lived, only added ambiance to the event of Mike's birth, and served as an omen of Mike's adventures to come. So how did a New York City kid, born in a blizzard, end up in Alaska? The dogs, the beauty, tranquility and privacy of Alaska were a natural magnet for Mike after he retiring from a 23 year career in the Air Force that took him to many places in the world. Mike's current job allowed him to travel all over Alaska. He wrote portions of this book, as well as his other books, in Juneau, Ketchikan, Bethel, Naknek, Fairbanks, Palmer, Wasilla, King Salmon, Nome and Anchorage. When asked why he wrote these books, Mike replied, For Rivers, who continues to inspire me. For the dogs, who are my companions and gave me their unconditional love. And especially for the kids, who hold the future in their hands.""
