Bummer and Lazarus is now out as an audio book, complete with music and sound effects. You might feel like you're standing right there, kicking up dust in the street with the peculiar people of San Francisco in 1861. You can find it on Amazon.com and iTunes. You can enjoy it chapter by chapter and get a full 2 hours and 52 minutes of entertaining history.
And if you're wondering, the two reporters who chased after this pair of dogs were real people. Albert Evans even has his own Wikipedia page. So also, Emperor Norton, George Washington Coombs, the King of Pain and all the other eccentrics were real people.
If you buy it (audio or ebook), please post a review where you bought it it so others can find out about it. Thanks.
