In Memoriam

To the memory of T.W. Hard who wrote Call Me Ishmael. Ted loved life and writing, but unfortunately he passed away recently before this book was published.

Call Me Ishmael is not just another dog story. The story begins as a Northern California family is on a vacation adjacent to the Pacific Ocean when their dog named Ishmael is lost at sea. After hours of trying to find the dog, the family assumes the dog has drowned, although the family’s seven-year-old son is sure the dog has survived. What unravels is a remarkable story whereby the dog has survived and experiences adventures that are incredible, including a train ride with two young hippies, another adventure at sea with a woman who owns a fishing boat, a chance encounter with a pack of wolves, and remarkably becoming part of a circus. How all this fits together and how it ends is the mystery.
