In this story, Nathan, a young Black crew member on a coastal schooner, forms a friendship with a huge Newfoundland dog named Sirius. Newfies are water dogs, strong swimmers famed for their instinctive ability to rescue foundering swimmers and even small boats. When Nathan's schooner is wrecked on ledges near Maine's infamous Boon Island light one dark, windy night, the dog's bravery and loyalty are put to the test. The lifeboat full of exhausted sailors must somehow cross the raging surf to reach the safety of the lighthouse keeper's home, and only Sirius can get them safely through.

I think I read this book when I was five years old,(or so legend has it). It was before kindergarten at Benjamin Rush in Redmond Washington in or around 1971. I read the book under the covers with a flashlight. I had learned to read Lassie by listening and memorizing the story. By extrapolating the letters then I was able to form the words just like Cookie Monster did on Sesame Street. It sticks in my mind because of the supernatural sort of intergallactic ending which gave me a warm fuzzy for a boy who was fascinated and haunted by death and the intergallactic beyond.
