I found myself enamored with Travis and his old yeller dog. Old Yeller saved everyone in the family’s lives in turn and sacrificed it all for his family. Aside from its touching portrayal of a boys love for his dog, Old Yeller is also a great piece of Wild West literature!
It was a quick read and I’m glad I read the novel before watching the film. Sad, but endearing, I think Old Yeller is a story most everyone can relate to!
