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?
Set in the rough wilderness of early frontier Texas, this timeless coming-of-age tale recounts the story of Travis, a 14-year-old who is left in charge of his family's farm when his father takes the cattle north on a drive, and his big yellow dog, Old Yeller. Book available.
