Item Description...
In the rugged landscape of early frontier Texas, fourteen-year-old Travis is faced with taking over his family's farm and making a painful, important decision

Publishers Description

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?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Highly recommended especially for public library audiobook collections  Feb 21, 2010
Peter Francis James lends his narrative talent to an unabridged audiobook production of Old Yeller, the classic, award-winning young adult novel about the bond between a boy and his beloved dog. Set in Texas hill country, Old Yeller remains as emotionally powerful today as when it was first published in 1956. Though created for a young adult and teenage audience, Old Yeller remains a dramatic story of sacrifice that resonates in adult readers as well, and is highly recommended especially for public library audiobook collections. 3 CDs, 4 hours.
A Book Review  Feb 2, 2010
Old Yeller by Fred Gipson is about golden retriever that is very playful. The story has six main characters they are Mama, Arlis, Travis , Old Yeller, Burn Sanderson, and Lisbeth .

The story takes place in a place called Birdsong Creek. Papa has to leave and Travis has to take his place and do his duties while he was gone. He has to hunt deer for meat so that mama can cook it for dinner.Every time Travis hags the meat Old Yeller comes and takes it right back off. Old Yeller keeps Arlis the little rascal of Mama's hands. Travis doesn't like him all that much . He wants to sell him but Arlis won't let him so he has to learn to like him. Everyday Arlis always gets in some kind of trouble, One day Old Yeller gets in trouble and Mama and Travis have to go and save him. A few weeks later Old Yeller got case of rabies from a wolf bite.Travis goes outside and says get me my gun and tragically he has to shoot him They get a dog Papa comes home and they are a family again.
Classic Tail  Oct 16, 2009
Timeless classic of a boy and his dog coming of age together. The unfortunate truth about getting a dog is that you are obtaining a best friend, a near family member whom you will inevitably outlive, perhaps that is their purpose. This is the story of this happening on the Texas frontier.
Library Necessary  Oct 3, 2009
I read this book the first time when I was a kid, I read it to my children, and I bought this copy to put in my library for my grandchildren to find and enjoy. It's a fine story - the best of its genre that I know of. Mr. Gipson was a true outdoorsman, and his love for the Central Texas wilderness and for good dogs, and his understanding of boys and their view of the world is expressed on every page.
An Outstanding Coming-of-Age Story  Jul 15, 2009
Travis Coates is a 14-year-old boy, left alone to protect his mother and younger brother on his family's 19th-century Texas homestead. When his father goes on a trip leaving him to "act a man's part," he throws himself into his new responsibilities. But the challenges of feeding and protecting his family prove to be greater than his boy's abilities, and he comes to depend on and love the stray dog which adopts their family.

The story follows chapter after chapter of gritty, riveting and often funny adventures as the family wrestles out a living from the land, dealing with angry bulls, thieving coons, an enraged bear, vicious javelinas, and an outbreak of "hydrophobia" (rabies). Through these challenges, Travis grows to fill his father's shoes while Yeller makes himself indispensible, saving the family member's lives time upon time. In the culmination of the story, Yeller is bitten while fighting off a rabies-infected wolf that had attacked Travis's mother. Realizing the bite of the wolf is fatal, and that Yeller will become a danger to the family before he dies, Travis kills him.

It is important to note that Travis is not forced to kill his beloved dog. He is quick to see that Yeller has been infected with rabies, and (unlike Jody in The Yearling) he does not deny that his dog is a danger to the family. Although he loves Yeller, he knows his responsibility is first toward his mother and brother. Although his mother offers to do it for him, he quickly and resolutely pays the price to protect his family. This self-sacrifice is exactly the kind of character quality our children ought to see as normal, and Travis's decision grows out of the his emerging character. It is an extraordinary act of moral courage, but it comes at the end of a story filled with ordinary acts of responsibility. In this outstanding coming-of-age story, Travis's manhood is achieved at great cost, and in this cost he proves his worth as a man.
