    On the surface, The Epic of Dexter is just one more man and dog story When the reader delves deeper, however, this epic is more – much more. The core of the story is the bond between a soldier and his War Dog, a theme that hearkens back to Jack London's Call of the Wild. Within that context are sub themes of war dog training, scenes of combat as seen through the eyes of both man and dog.

The core of the story is the bond between a soldier and his War Dog, a theme that hearkens back to Jack London's Call of the Wild. Within that context are sub themes of war dog training, scenes of combat as seen through the eyes of both man and dog. There is the story of loss and regaining, a travelogue of Colorado, including physical topography, flora and fauna, the adventures of a solitary dog making its – no, HIS way across 2,500 miles of America guided only by his instincts and his will to reunite with his human/his handler/his completion. Along the way, we also observe the effects of PTSD on a gravely wounded American veteran of the Afghan was and the role an animal can play in his recovery. The Epic of Dexter puts the reader inside the mind of an animal the way very few novels can. The author is clearly a man who has spent considerable time around dogs, is intimately familiar with the geography of the American West, and has the ability to place himself (and the reader) inside the mind of an animal. All in all, Jean Vives has created characters whom you feel you know, a “dog against the world” story, and a vivid description of modern day Colorado. Best of all, The Epic of Dexter is a great read.
