Born in Enfield, Middlesex, he began his career as a reporter in Essex and then moved to London where he worked on a trade magazine before joining the publishing house of New English Library.

Oddly, Haining does not mention the Animal Planet LASSIE series It's definitely an okay book for a Lassie fan, but you might want to wait until it's remaindered or if you can find it used. 5 people found this helpful.

Oddly, Haining does not mention the Animal Planet LASSIE series. The photos inside for the most part look like they were printed directly from the internet, pretty low res. The shot from LASSIE'S RESCUE RANGERS shows the television scan lines. No one proofread the book. Frank Weatherwax is referred to as "Frank Rudd" in one place. Ruth Martin is referred to as "Ruth Miller" once. It's definitely an okay book for a Lassie fan, but you might want to wait until it's remaindered or if you can find it used.

In 1938, Eric Knight wrote a magazine story about an impoverished Yorkshire family who are forced to sell their beloved collie dog to a Scottish breeder. Against all the odds, the dog manages to find her way home. Described by its author as a job of 'bread and butter workmanship', "Lassie Come Home" went on to inspire films, radio, and television shows, and a staggering array of merchandising which have established her as 'the world's favourite dog'

I have read some of Mr. Haining's DOCTOR WHO books and was eagerly awaiting this one. I made the mistake of not reading the description completely; I knew it was only a little over 100 pages, but didn't realize it was only gift-book size. It is therefore hideously overpriced.

For the record, it actually has interesting bits: traces the history of the collie, has a chapter on real-life come home dogs (if you've never read the story of Bobbie, the Oregon collie, it's here), several chapters on Eric Knight, one chapter about how "Pal" (the original dog in LASSIE COME HOME) got the part and another about the other movies, one chapter about the television series and other television series like THE NEW LASSIE and LASSIE'S RESCUE RANGERS. Oddly, Haining does not mention the Animal Planet LASSIE series.

But it is also pretty superficial, which is to be expected at the size of the book. The photos inside for the most part look like they were printed directly from the internet, pretty low res. The shot from LASSIE'S RESCUE RANGERS shows the television scan lines.

No one proofread the book. Frank Weatherwax is referred to as "Frank Rudd" in one place. Ruth Martin is referred to as "Ruth Miller" once. And a photo of Jon Provost with Lassie is labeled as being of Tommy Rettig.

And apparently Mr. Haining has read my Lassie web site (or whomever helped him with his research did), for many reasons, but primarily because he repeats my one-line review of THE PAINTED HILLS verbatim. Would have been nice had he mentioned my name in the acknowledgements!

It's definitely an okay book for a Lassie fan, but you might want to wait until it's remaindered or if you can find it used.

Being we have 3 collies in the family, we collect all things Lassie. Learning about the life of Eric Knight was a "must" for us. This is the only biography of him I could find. If you love Lassie, add this to your collie library.
