Summary
When a novel like Huckleberry Finn, or The Yearling, comes along it defies customary adjectives because of the intensity of the respouse it evokes in the reader. Such a book, we submit, is Old Yeller; to read this eloquently simple story of a boy and his dog in the Texas hill country is an unforgettable and deeply moving experience. Set in the rough wilderness of early frontier Texas, "Old Yeller" is a timeless coming-of-age tale. Travis is left to care for the farm when his father leaves on a cattle drive. He copes with many hardships with the help of his big, yellow dog, Old Yeller.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 6-9. Left in charge of his pioneer family's Texas farm while his father is away, Travis is forced to grow up quickly with the assistance of Old Yeller, an unwanted stray dog. Animal and human interaction in this semidesert environment is strikingly portrayed."
