Product Description

September 11, 2001 began as a normal day for Michael Hingson and his seeing-eye dog Roselle. With the help of his trusted companion, he navigated the bustling streets of New York City and began the workday at his office in Tower One of the World Trade Center. However, time would prove September 11, 2001 to be anything but a normal day.
In Thunder Dog, Michael shares his harrowing escape from the World Trade Center attacks from the unique perspective of a legally blind man. Trusting in Roselle's instincts and guidance, both dog and master survived that day. Michael also offers his outlook on living blind in a sighted society and how perseverance and hope can help us overcome obstacles and disability. Thunder Dog is an inspiring read for dog lovers or anyone facing a challenge, in need of faith, or a boost of courage.

Publisher's Description

An instant New York Times bestseller, Thunder Dog tells the true story of a blind man, his guide dog, and the life-changing power of faith and trust in the face of terror.

When one of four hijacked planes flew into the World Trade Center's North Tower on September 11, 2001, Michael Hingson, a district sales manager for a data protection and network security systems company, was sitting down for a meeting. His guide dog, Roselle, was at his feet.

Blind from birth, Michael could hear the sounds of shattering glass, falling debris, and terrified people flooding all around him. But Roselle sat calmly beside him. In that moment, Michael chose to trust Roselle's judgment and not to panic. They were a team.

As you relive that fateful day in September 2001 alongside Michael and Roselle, you'll learn:

  • The ways that grief and loss can lead the way for change
  • How the rare trust between a man and his guide dog can inspire your own unshakeable faith
  • The healing power of telling your own story

Praise for Thunder Dog:

"Chapter by chapter of this intriguing work will keep you spellbound. Thunder Dog celebrates the power of the human and animal bond. We all can learn life lessons from this incredible story."

--Larry King, Emmy award-winning broadcaster and longtime host of Larry King Live
