At first, Travis couldn't stand the sight of Old Yeller. The stray dog was ugly, and a thieving rascal, too. But he sure was clever, and a smart dog could be a big help on the wild Texas frontier, especially with Papa away on a long cattle drive up to Abilene.

Strong and courageous, Old Yeller proved that he could protect Travis's family from any sort of danger. But can Travis do the same for Old Yeller?

Do you want to cry? Because this is a book that will make you cry. I loved it as a kid. I grew up watching the Disney movie, which does surprising justice to the book. Every boy needs a dog, especially an Old Yeller. It's an excellent coming of age story in the American frontier. There are morals and lessons that the author tells in such a way that they stick with you. The boys in my class especailly connected with it, but decades later I occasionally find myself wanting to reread it.
