Sometime in 2002, a young pet prairie dog was abandoned on a Long Island, N.Y., beach. This book is based on her story. Here is what two authors have to say about "Philomena's Homecoming: " "Philomena travels across the country and into my heart. Her tale involves big dangers along her way to family, love and home. This is a story that, by implication, describes wildlife rehabilitation without ever mentioning the phrase." -- Chet Gottfried, wildlife photographer, author of "The Steel Eye."
