A mix of good, fair, and excellent stories by the owner and author of "Lad". ( )

Several good stories, and several that were individually not bad but too sickly-sweet en masse. A poor arrangement, too, that put a bunch of the sweet ones together near the end. Some clever stories - I liked Seventh Son particularly; some I'd read elsewhere, like The Coward (on the sweet side); some rather annoying (and racist) like the one about the dog that "wandered off" whenever his (Negro, to use the term used in the story) caretaker needed some extra money. Collies going back to the wild, and thriving there by instinct, showed up in several stories; so did men going to jail or hospital or both and being more worried about their dogs than their own problems. Thane's story was good, too - that was the last one. Non-fiction and in its way among the overly-sweet ones - Thane overcomes everything until human malice brings him down. A decent collection, very Terhune. I'll read it again, though I may skip some stories. ( )
