A book about a dog named Sam inspires love and hope


Co-authors Michael and Linda Harris have written a true story about a puppy born from a golden retriever and wild coyote parents. The book entitled The Miracle of Sam is meant to show how help can be found in the least likely places, and that love and faith can be everyone's true saviors.

In this true story of love and adaptability, the authors chronicle the birth and the early life of Sam in a most engaging way. Readers are made to feel the healing bond that this miracle puppy makes with a couple in Sedona.

Through this story of hope and extraordinary friendship that comes from unexpected places, readers can witness Sam's journey from a kennel in Sedona into the hearts of a troubled family that are intended to leave the readers with feelings of new found hope and joy. Sam's stories are meant to amuse and delight readers of all ages and backgrounds.

According to their recent press release, the reason why the authors chose to share this endearing story is to offer hope, no matter how dire one’s condition may be. As economic tides ebb and flow, so do the lives of people, not just in the United States but also in other parts of the world. They feel everyone has a story to tell because in some way, they most likely have experienced setbacks in their living conditions and overall morale.

The authors are active in the Sedona area, volunteering under USFS programs which are dedicated to preservation of the Sedona wildlife preserves and trail systems.
