9780064403825: Old Yeller

The beloved tale of a family carving out a new life on the American frontier.
They made a home on Birdsong Creek, back in the 1980's, out in the Texas wilderness where a man and a woman could build a dream. These were people who took their joy, their courage, their greatness from the land.
There was Ma and Pa and little Arliss--and Travis, the fourteen-year-old whose father had left him to take care of things, and protect his mother and small brother while Pa was away driving a herd of cattle up to Abilene. It was hard work: plowing, chopping wood, tending the garden, hunting for food, and trying to keep Arliss in line. It was too big a job for a boy to do alone. It took that boy and a big, ugly, yellow dog who showed up out of nowhere one night--a dog that would bring them love and laughter and, in the end, a terrible heartache.
"Old Yeller" is more than just an account of a boy's love for his dog, more than just a tale of frontier life. It is a powerful journey into the heart and emotions of a boy faced with decisions that lift him from childhood to manhood. Evocative, touching, powerful--"Old Yeller" is a classic tale of challenge, adventure and love.
