Nora, The Fifty-Cent Dog (paperback)
Nora, The Fifty-Cent Dog is based on a true story of a U.S. Coast Guard beach patrol dog in North Carolina during World War II.

When his life was in danger, Nora found help and saved him, for which she received an award from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Written for young readers, this tale of canine love and loyalty will warm the heart of anyone who enjoys the partnership of owning a dog.
