From Publishers Weekly
Nop, the main character in McCaig's pleasurable out-of-print classic, is a sheepdog run competitively by his Virginian master in the kind of "trials" that test such a dog; when some unscrupulous rednecks steal him, other kinds of trials begin.

Nop's Trials was is one of those rare books that you want to put down because you don't want it to end, but you can't stand to not know how things turn out.
Charles Coyote, author Poison Switch
Since then, I've re-read Nop's Trials, along with every other book that Donald McCaig has written.
While I have enjoyed all of Mr. McCaig's books, Nop's Trials is by far the best.
It's a great story that will be long remembered, not just by Border Collie owners like myself, but by any dog or animal lover.
Nop's Trials is a story that could be made into a great movie!
