About this product
- DescriptionAs a K-9 Search and Rescue handler, Rebekkah James has learned that being able to navigate her way through the wilderness area of Minnesota is important. After all, those she goes to help are often missing because they have lost their way. She kws that when Law Enforcement calls, her world of running a bed and breakfast changes to a world with dogs, maps, and woods. But sometimes, those in the woods don't want to be found - or have something they want to keep hidden from prying eyes. And that is when she wonders if doing Search and Rescue is really worth the risk.
- Author BiographySharolyn Sievert, a Dog Writers Association of America (DWAA) finalist in 2015, is an engineering coordinator by trade and has been active in volunteer Search and Rescue since 2003. A member of Central Lakes Search and Rescue, she responds with her unit to calls from Law Enforcement from across the Upper Midwest of the United States to search for missing persons. The strength and purpose of their motto, . . . so that others may live. is not taken lightly. While she truly loves training dogs to cultivate and heighten their innate skills to locate the human scent, the goal is serious. Sharolyn was born in Tachikowa, Japan in an Air Force Base hospital on Mother's Day, and her brothers liked to tell people that her left big toe is stamped 'Made in Japan' (it really isn't). Sharolyn's dad was an Eagle Scout and throughout his life, an avid outdoorsman and hunter. Because of her Dad's love of the outdoors, family outings were often spent hiking in the woods and vacations meant camping. Her sister noted how very proud he would have been of his daughter's work with Search and Rescue. Sharolyn's personal knowledge of outdoor survival, gleaned from a lifetime of experience, adds both to her skill as a SAR volunteer and to the accuracy of the SAR work presented in her book. Her family is incredibly proud and supportive of her out of the norm volunteer work. The miles spent on the road, crashing through woods in all weather, the hours of training, are a precious gift to those she serves. Over the years Sharolyn has trained and certified four different dogs in multiple disciplines, and responded to many, many searches. Additionally, she serves as an instructor, a speaker, a K-9 evaluator, and maintains certification in a number of areas beyond the K-9 work she loves, including being a Certified Minnesota Emergency Manager. Her hope is that the reader will find in the pages of her books an appreciation for the incredible, highly skilled work that a Search and Rescue dog can do, and the amazing dedication it takes to be a K-9 Search and Rescue handler.
