It was a bleak day when the Patterson's faithful 14-year-old sheep dog, Farley, died while saving young April from a raging river. Across the country, fans who read For Better or For Worse in some 1,600 daily newspapers, reacted with surprise and grief. Since 1979, Johnston has created an affectionate family whose members face real problems with grace and humor. Readers have accompanied Elly and John Patterson through the ears, watching them raise their children, Michael, Elizabeth, and April; commiserating when they dealt with aging parents; wondering how they'd handle a friend's homosexuality. In Remembering Farley, Lynn Johnston shares her favorite selection from the heroic sheep dog's life. This retrospective includes strips from Farley's puppy days to his dying day, scenes that capture the essence of raising and loving a pet. Remembering Farley also contains some new illustrations and quotes from some of the letters sent by his many fans. Remembering Farley is a tender tribute to a dog that many of us felt was our own devoted friend.

The general's courage and calm under pressure would be echoed by many other sons and daughters of Manchester in the succeeding centuries, as the hamlet settled around Amoskeag Falls grew into New Hampshire's largest city. John Clayton describes thirty-two of the Queen City's most remarkable residents, from Iwo Jima flag raiser Rene Gagnon and fast-food innovator Richard McDonald to lesser-known but equally compelling figures, including beloved lunch cart driver Arthur Red Ullrich and the late firefighter Dave Anderson. Collecting columns first published in the New Hampshire Union Leader, Clayton reveals the essence of Manchester's enduring strength and appeal: its people.
