September 11, 2001 began as a normal day for Michael Hingson and his seeing-eye dog Roselle. With the help of his trusted companion, he navigated the bustling streets of New York City and began the workday at his office in Tower One of the World Trade Center. However, time would prove September 11, 2001 to be anything but a normal day.
In Thunder Dog, Michael shares his harrowing escape from the World Trade Center attacks from the unique perspective of a legally blind man. Trusting in Roselle's instincts and guidance, both dog and master survived that day. Michael also offers his outlook on living blind in a sighted society and how perseverance and hope can help us overcome obstacles and disability. Thunder Dog is an inspiring read for dog lovers or anyone facing a challenge, in need of faith, or a boost of courage.

Review 1 for Thunder Dog: The True Story of Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero
Thunder Dog where do I begin. The book was very inspirational, I could not put it down. I am a dog lover, and my favorite dogs are Labs. It has always been a dream of mine to one day own one. After reading the book I have to get one, and soon. Well enough of that. You might be wondering about the book. The main character is Michael Hingson and of course he is blind, but you see he is not your typical idea in your head blind. Michael Hingson is a very independent man. He travels, he graduated college, and he loves technology. He is like everyone. person does. He shares with the reader his life. He gives us first peak on the challenges and triumphs of being blind. His life is very interesting. His parents treated him like his siblings and wanted no less, but his hardest to get along in this world. He did quiet well for himself. Michael Hingson shares his life when he is young all the way to the event of 9/11. As he is experiencing this terrible ordeal he draws from his memory of the events he went through. His dog Roselle by his side and working to complete the task and she does. This book is a must read. I enjoyed every page of the book. I received this book for free from Bookbub.com thank you.
