(From the publisher):
Travis was fourteen that summer of 1860 and head of the family while Papa was herding the cattle to Abilene. Working the homestead, protecting Mama, keeping five-year-old Arliss from swimming in the drinking water - it was a man-sized job.
Then, one day, the big yellow dog came out of nowhere and stole a whole side of meat. Travis got so mad he wanted to kill the mutt. But Arliss cried and screamed, and the dog was allowed to stay on.
They named him Old Yeller, and he turned out to be more than worth his keep. For without him, they would not have got through that summer alive.
