Read full description of the books:
I love Alexander Key books. They present strangers coming to our world and having to deal with (a) a couple of people who are really nice and (b) a whole lotta people who are absolutely violent. In this case, the stranger is a giant telepathic dog, Jagger, who arrives in our world in the middle of hunting season. Jagger's wounded by a hunter and has to hide out in the forest on the mountains.
He manages to get in touch with a little girl, Nan, who can speak to him. Her brother, Peter, can't, but he believes her in his own way and they both try to help Jagger. They wind up taking him to a friend of theirs, Rush, who is a Native American. He can at least get the gist of what Jagger's trying to tell him, and they realize there's something nasty on the mountains, something neither of them recognizes. But that's not the only problem - Nan and Peter's stepmother is planning to kill the kids to take control of the horse ranch they were left when their father died in an airplane crash.
Everything's wrapped up a little too easily at the end but this is a younger reader's book. Still, I was left wanting more. This doesn't seem as well-thought out as The Forgotten Door or the first Witch Mountain novel but it's enjoyable and Jagger is definitely a heroic protagonist. And what little kid wouldn't love a huge white dog who can talk to them via telepathy?

Read information about the authorAn American science fiction writer, most of whose books were aimed at a juvenile audience. He became a nationally known illustrator before he became an author. After he began writing novels for young people, he moved his family to the North Carolina mountains, and most of his books include that wild and rugged landscape.
His novel Escape to Witch Mountain was made into a popular film in 1975 and again in 1995. His novel The Incredible Tide became a popular anime series, Future Boy Conan.
He is known for his portrayals of alien but human-like people who have psychic powers and a close communion with nature, and who can speak with animals. In The Strange White Doves, he professed his belief that animals are conscious and aware, and have subtle ways of communicating, perhaps via telepathy.
The protagonists of Key's books are often ostracized, feared, or persecuted due to their abilities or alien origin, and Key uses this as a clear metaphor for racism and other prejudice. In several of the books (most notably "The Case of the Vanishing Boy,") Key portrays some sort of communal withdrawing from society with a group of like-minded individuals. - Wikipedia -
