Skipper The Guide Dog

by Arthur C. Bartlett

This is the first known book to be published on guide dogs in the United States. Ben's brother Jerry lives dangerously. He flies his little yellow plane and works for the Secret Service. But when an accident robs him of his vision, Ben thinks that a guide dog might be the ticket to get Jerry back into good spirits. The book follows their training and on with the story. Jerry and Ben get wind of a counterfeiting ring in their town. Does Jerry, with Skipper at his side, still have what it takes to be a Secret Service man? Can they capture the crooks?
