|Dan's coiled right struck again, and McQuade's head jerked back|
Silver Chief: Dog of the North, in the same series has no illustrations apart from the cover and the frontispiece which are both drawn by Sheppard!

The third title I own in the "Collins Famous Dog Stories" series is Tan: a wild dog by Thomas C. Hinkle.

|Tan hit the grey wolf like a ton of bricks|
Hinkle has quite a fan-following in those readers who like pony and horse stories. He lived from 1876-1949 and you can find a biography and photo on Onanga, Kansas Rootsweb site.
I had an enjoyable few hours browsing images on the Internet from this series and have listed them below, but none appear to be drawn by Sheppard. And interestingly I think the only one I would wonder about would be Spike!
