Product Description


Praise for the hardback published in 2011: 'Reveals there was more than one Greyfriars Bobby... all the evidence points to Scotland's most-loved pooch being two completely different dogs.' THE DAILY RECORD; 'There were two Greyfriars Bobbies!' THE SCOTS MAGAZINE; 'Greyfriars Bobby was a Victorian con trick. Jan Bondeson has uncovered evidence that there were in fact two Bobbies and that neither of them belonged to the man buried in Greyfriar's cemetery, Edinburgh, whose grave they sat on' THE DAILY MAIL; 'Greyfriars Bobby, the Victorian dog that held a 14-year vigil at the grave of its master, is actually a myth... a publicity stunt drummed up by local businessmen to attract custom to their corner of Edinburgh' THE DAILY TELEGRAPH.

I bought the wrong Greyfriars Bobby book so waiting for the Eleanor Atkinson one. It is o.k. it reminded me as a similar type of book like The Making of Gone With The Wind.

HASH(0x9ff0a8e4) out of 5 stars Description on Amazon Feb. 27 2012
By Rocky Fjord - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This has to be one of the dumbest descriptions of a book Amazon has ever
come up with. Leaves one with the impression that the author will set about
to crush the legend of the little dog. I wouldn't touch this book with that
kind of teaser.
