Karen Shirk, felled at age twenty-four by a neuromuscular disease and facing life as a ventilator-dependent, immobile patient, was turned down by every service dog agency in the country because she was "too disabled." Her nurse encouraged her to tone down the suicidal thoughts, find a puppy, and raise her own service dog. Karen did this, and Ben, a German shepherd, dragged her back into life. "How many people are stranded like I was," she wondered, "who would lead productive lives if only they had a dog?" A thousand state-of-the-art dogs later, Karen Shirk's service dog academy, 4 Paws for Ability, is restoring broken children and their families to life. Long shunned by scientists as a manmade, synthetic species, and oft-referred to as "Man's Best Friend" almost patronizingly, dogs are finally paid respectful attention by a new generation of neuroscientists and animal behaviorists. Melissa Fay Greene weaves the latest scientific discoveries about our co-evolution with dogs with Karen's story and a few stories of suffering children and their heartbroken families

Features a talk by Atlanta journalist Melissa Fay Greene, author of "Praying for sheetrock : a work of nonfiction."

It features the first African-American county commissioner, Thurnell Alston, a retired boilermaker, and the struggle that went on due to the corruption of Sheriff Tom Popell. Alston initiated voting rights lawsuits, fought drugs and introduced medical clinics, plumbing and running water to "a forgotten county needy in every way." Greene was a paralegal that worked Legal Services lawyers to clean up the county. Unfortunately, Alston himself was caught in a government sting and sent to Federal prison in 1988. A question and answer session follows her talk
