Peter Martin was born in Argentina and educated in America. He has taught English literature at universities here and in England, and is the author of the recently acclaimed Life of James Boswell. He and his wife, Cindy, spend much of their time in Appletree Cottage in the village of Bury, England.
"Perth is simple, funny, and touching....James Herriot's early books come to mind." --New York Times Book Review
"Martin is more eloquent than most [dog] owners [and his] biting prose enlivens the bio of Perth the beagle."
"An adventure story, a love story and a touching tribute to a dog that changed a family's life forever...sure to delight anyone who has ever loved a dog, beagle or otherwise."
--St. Louis Post-Dispatch
