No Place like Home is the true story of one man’s courage and persistence as he struggles to give his dogs at home, and those still in Afghanistan, the best possible chance. It will warm – and break – the hearts of dog lovers everywhere.

Pen Farthing After 20 odd years as a Royal Marine I never thought I would be semi abandoning my passion for climbing and kayaking and heading off in the direction of animal welfare.

But a dog called Nowzad changed my view on life. He also sparked my desire to write. Now I spend my time managing as best I can the Nowzad Dogs charity, (Just Giving Charity of the Year 2013), enjoying the odd rock climb when it is not raining and walking my Afghan / Iraqi pack (Nowzad, Tali, Patchdog and Maxchat).

So far I have written two books ‘One Dog at a Time’ and ‘No Place like Home’, both books published by Ebury and I hope that there will be more…

Amazon 5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book should read
By Mr. J. W. Langford
I read this book and couldn’t put it down, Pen should be recommended for a medal for the time he put in for the dogs under such a hard regime where they don’t like dogs. If the world was full of people like the author more dogs would be in a happy family. Well worth the read and highly recommended
