There is something special in the telling of this story which makes it more than just a tender account of a boy's love for his dog, and more than a tale of frontier days. It is the combination of excellent writing and the sensitivity to human emotions that places it on a shelf with the classics." – Saturday Review of Literature.
When a novel like Huckleberry Finn or The Yearling comes along, it defies customary adjectives because of the intensity of the response it evokes in the reader. Such a tale is Old Yeller; to listen to this eloquently simply story of a boy and his dog in the Texas hill country is an unforgettable and deeply moving experience.
"Exciting and heartwarming indeed. Recommended for adults and teenagers." – Library Journal
