Book was in great condition . Thanks again !

Never read the book or saw the movie . We just Black Mouth Cur like Ol Yeller and i decided to read the book . Very moving book and i enjoyed it immensely.

A good book from way back.

This story takes place way back in the day. But it's good. Sad ending, but that's ok. I still enjoyed reading it. When I first bought it, I thought it would be good. Then i saw the story takes place way back in the day and wasn't so sure. But i was wrong. Definitely one of my favorite classic books.

Clearly,The Best Book I Have Ever Read!

One night my dad came home while I was asleep with this book.I saw it the next morning and just put it away and then 2 months later I just decided to read it since it looked short.I loved the book!I even cried although I knew what was gonna happen since I had already seen the movie.I loved it.It was like the movie with more scenes and a few differences.I love it.There is nothing like the first time you read this book either.Fred Gipson was a very talented writer!Buy this book!


I'm a 7th grade teacher and I introduced my students to this novel for the first time this year. To my amazement they had never even heard of OLD YELLER. Now, middle school students can be the toughest audience in the world but THEY LOVED THIS BOOK.Author Fred Gipson perfectly captures the time period of Texas in the late 1800's and the challenges of daily life. Into the mix of chores and adventures on the farm is the universal bond of a boy and his dog. Travis and Old Yeller are two characters that any child will immediately connect with and grow to love. And naturally as many novels geared towards younger readers, the conclusion will remain with them long after the novel has been read.On a side note I must also recommend the classic Walt Disney version of OLD YELLER (VHS or DVD). Young readers will enjoy the similarities and differences between novel and movie. It's an excellent example to build discussion or writing lessons involving comparisons or contrasts.And while I have continually mentioned young readers I should also comment that OLD YELLER is a must-read for people of any age group. So the next time you need to be entertained by a great novel, pick up this classic.

Just a good book

I just recently read Old Yeller for a book report and I enjoyed it greatly. I give it five stars for being easy to read and heart tugging. Some people like books that tug and this one does. Travis, the oldest boy, has to take charge when he dad leaves for driving cattle. He looks after his mother and his little brother, Arliss. While his dad is gone a dog shows up. He's an ugly Yeller dog, and yet the decided to keep him. Well they go through a lot together, one marking their wild pigs. When they do this, things just go down hill. I'm going to stop right there, and hope you pick this book up and read it.
