  • Based on the true story as told in the widely acclaimed Bring Jade Home, this beautifully illustrated children’s edition follows a lost Australian shepherd as she encounters grizzlies, wolves, bison, and other hazards in the wilds of Yellowstone National Park. Brimming with action, this suspenseful story with a heart-warming ending will be a favorite for anyone who loves dogs and Yellowstone Park.

    Just 15 months old at the time, Jade survived longer than any other dog lost in Yellowstone. Alone and surrounded by wolves, mountain lions, and grizzly bears, what will she do? Can her owners David and Laura find her before winter? Each day becomes a race against time as hundreds of volunteers join in a desperate search and Jade herself navigates the wild to stay safe. This story will melt your heart and renew your faith in dogs—and people.

Michelle Caffrey grew up in “Chicagoland” next to O’Hare Airport, dreaming of seeing a larger world. Her dreams were eventually realized, traveling by RV around the United States and later living in Penang, Malaysia. Michelle and her husband then bought a 1906 Dutch barge, the Imagine, and cruised the waterways of Europe, providing stories for her travel memoir, Just Imagine: A New Life on an Old Boat. Michelle has since written two novels as well as Bring Jade Home: A Dog Lost in Yellowstone, her first book with Farcountry Press. Jade Lost in Yellowstone is her second book with Farcountry Press.
