This is the first of the Nop books, so it's the one to start with if you are choosing between Nop's Hope and Nop's Trials. Donald McCaig both knows a lot about the world of working border collies, and can tell a good story. It's worth reading for the story alone, and if you like collies, that's a plus. It is the story of a border collie, and his trials in life, as well as sheepdog trials. There are insights into how dogs see the world, as well as how dogs and humans understand, or fail to understand one another.
