Magic is the unforgettable story of a lonely young woman, a grade school
teacher named Carolyn Adams, and her adopted shelter dog,
a fifteen-year-old basenji she names Magic.
Magic unfolds, Carolyn and the old dog begin a friendship
that leads them on a wondrous journey to the wild and beautiful Outer Banks.
Along the way, they learn about the history of each other, about the magical
power of love and trust that is as much a part of life as living and breathing,
and about the bittersweet victory of setting painful memories free.
Anyone who's ever adopted a dog; anyone who's ever loved a
dog and had that love unconditionally returned; and anyone who's ever
shared the beauty of their dog's autumn years -- will love August
James Street wrote the classic Good-bye, My Lady over 40 years ago has
a novel about a basenji had such far-reaching appeal.
While Street's “Lady” typified the basenji of his time (a fairly
rare, relatively unknown breed), August
Magic's “Ch. Windswept of Hatteras” (a.k.a. “Magic”) speaks for
the dogs of our times -- both purebred and mix-bred -- who often find themselves at
the mercy of our fast-paced society.
Magic is about second chances,
about the magic that people and companion
animals can make together,
and about how saving a life can have a positive
effect on your own."
