Based on a true story, this book, designed for young people, tells of a dog who wandered into San Diego in 1886. He had probably been on the steamboat Santa Rosa , and once the boat landed, the pooch decided to explore the town.
It didn't take long for the dog, who was given the name "Bum,"
to endear himself to just about everyone and in a very short
time, he was adopted as San Diego's "town dog."
The many adventures of Bum and his friendship with Captain James
Friend provide a charming tale for all ages.
