Publisher's summary

When a novel like Huckleberry Finn or The Yearling comes along, it defies customary adjectives because of the intensity of the response it evokes in the reader. Such a tale is Old Yeller; to listen to this eloquently simply story of a boy and his dog in the Texas hill country is an unforgettable and deeply moving experience.

Critic reviews

"There is something special in the telling of this story which makes it more than just a tender account of a boy's love for his dog, and more than a tale of frontier days. It is the combination of excellent writing and the sensitivity to human emotions that places it on a shelf with the classics." ( Saturday Review of Literature)
"Exciting and heartwarming indeed. Recommended for adults and teenagers." ( Library Journal)
