This dog was not the one on the television show, because he was long dead, but the legend and the icon lived on. Susan Orlean tells the story of Lee Duncan finding this puppy during World War I, bringing him back to the USA, training him, and eventually making him into a movie star. From there on the story has a lot of ins and outs. Who knew this would be so interesting! Her book is titled simply, Rin Tin Tin, and it is an enjoyable read.
