"Nancy Gillespie knew Red Dog well, and being a Dampier resident, it makes her eligible to have the honour of writing about what will become a famous legend.

Red Dog was masterless, but owned by the Pilbara, and has been likened to the dog on the tuckerbox at Gundagai New South Wales, they both toiled by instinct, and were proven to be man's best friend.

Nancy diligently worked to gain correct information and suitable photographs, plus an added benefit to readers on the care of any North-west canine. With a Pilbara writers generous disposition she was also anxious to publish poetry on Red Dog by fellow writers. This is now added to give a paw sore traveller a gracious epitaph, and makes the souvenir RED DOG book memorable.

Such a spirit is recorded by a housewife's pen, and has transformed Nancy Gillespie to a capable author. If it could happen, then Red Dog would give her a lick of approval."


These are the words that were written by Valerie Joy Laughton, a well respected Pilbara author, who did a book review in 1983 shortly after it was first published.

Nancy also won Pilbara writer of the year in 1983 for 'Red Dog'
