Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing

Despite the fact that he didn't think his own dog liked him very much, New York Times Magazine writer Benoit Denizet-Lewis embarked on a four-month, 13,000-mile journey across the country in a rented RV with his moody labrador Casey. In his attempt to understand our country's obsession with dogs, Denizet-Lewis traveled from Missouri where he searched for strays with a rescuer, to dog parks in Manhattan, to California for a meeting with "Dog Whisperer" Cesar Millan. The resulting book, Travels with Casey, is part memoir and part travelogue of a canine-obsessed country. Sort of like if Wes Anderson directed Best in Show.
