About "Silence Of The Bell"

The book "Silence Of The Bell" shares author Anne Allbright Smith's experiences with Eastern box turtles after she and her husband purchased a 65-acre piece of old farmland in New York state. Ms. Smith became captivated by the box turtles she found on her property but had difficulty finding them on her own due to the grass, brush, and woods. She soon trained her two Australian cattle dogs, Anzac and Diggy, to find them for her. The book gets its name from the bell she kept on each of the dog's collars: Following the dogs across her property she couldn't always see them, but she could still hear their bells as they searched for turtles. If one of the bells went silent she knew that dog was sitting patiently by a turtle it had found, waiting for her to catch up.
