Boomer Jack. What a story!
I first heard this story in 1998 on the 4th day of July. An old news paper pinned to a wall on 1st and C streets in Eureka. It had me in tears so bad that literally I could not talk. Friends are asking,"what is wrong?"
I found the book written by Lincoln Kilian in the Discovery Shop in Eureka.
on June 25,2010.
As soon as I seen it I knew I had found something very special.
This story brings me to tears and I have no reason why other than it gets me in the heart.
Seeing Jacks pictures and hearing more of his lifes stories truly brings this dogs life back to life.
Thank you Mr. Kilian for all the work that you put into Boomer Jack and keeping his story alive for more generations to learn about this very extraordinary dog and his vagabond lifestyle.
You cannot imagine the enjoyment that I have gotten form your book.
To see the old pictures of Eureka and the alley that is just down the street from where I grew up is fasinating because it still looks the same today as it did in the 1920's.
Thank you for this unforgetable story.
