The dogs of winter by Bobbie Pyron is an incredible, heart-pounding survival story based on fact. Ivan is but one of 80,000 to 2 million homeless children forced to fend for himself in Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union. Most of these abandoned children form packs and live in vacant buildings and/or underground train stations. What distinguishes four year old Ivan Mishukov is his decision to depend on a pack of feral street dogs instead of other children for his survival. For two years they eek out an existence together, helping one another just as a family would. Enduring the brutal Russian winters with temperatures often twenty below zero is almost beyond belief. As Ivan is later quoted as saying, "I was better off with the dogs.
