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.

"Old Yeller" has never been out of print since its first publication in 1956, and it's easy to see why. It won both the Newberry and William Allen White awards and it has captivated readers for nearly 60 years. The sad ending may be too much for younger children, but it's a rousing adventure tale about the hard life on the American frontier, laced with humor and thrills. Besides, how many fictional dogs have a brand of dog food named after them?
