Review: Thunder Dog

Thunder Dog by Michael Hingson with Susy Flory is an awesome book. Never heard of it, will let me tell you about it. It is a book that shows not only the courage and determination of a survivor of that horrific terrorist attack on our country on September 11, but also the relationship between a man and his dog.
Michael Hingson was working on the 78th floor of Tower One on that fateful day when the plane struck the 93rd floor. The book details his journey down 78 flights of stairs to escape from the destruction. That story in itself is incredible but add to this the fact that Michael was declared at six months of age to be legally blind. He travels down the 78 floors with help of his seeing eye dog, Roselle, and his friend, Dave. Roselle shows great courage and determination in assisting in his escape.
First, let me begin with saying that I was drawn to this book because my grandmother was legally blind. She was born seeing but lost her eyesight later in her life. She has always been one of my heroes. Reading this journey of Michael and Roselle gave me a new found appreciation for all that I have been blessed with. I don’t know if faced with the life or death dilemma that they were faced with , I would have been so calm and levelheaded. I would recommend this book to anyone. In fact I have already given my copy to my mom and dad to read.  It is amazing when drawing on your faith in God what He can get you through.
