The True Story of Jim the Wonder Dogby Marty Rhodes Figley

Evidence existed for both: Jim predicted seven Kentucky Derby winners and the winners of the 1936 World Series and presidential race, but he could also take direction in foreign languages (Italian, French, German, Spanish), shorthand, and Morse Code—and recognized both colors and musical instruments. This is the true story of the dog that became known as Missouri’s Wonder Dog.
