Description


"What Mr. Gipson has written is the story of a grim situation, a desperate chase, filled with brutality and heroism, yet he has written it with a sense of young wonder and even, at time, with humor." –New York Times Book Review

The thrilling story of the son of Old Yeller

In this sequel to Old Yeller, Travis and his younger brother Arliss are kidnapped by a band of Apaches, and Savage Sam, the son of the beloved yellow dog, Old Yeller, leads a frantic chase to bring them back.

About the Author


With Old Yeller, Fred Gipson secured his place as one of the finest novelists in America. The book was published to instant acclaim and has become one of the most beloved children's classics ever written. Since its publication in 1956, Old Yeller has won countless awards, including the 1957 Newbery Honor. Mr. Gipson's other works include both fiction and non-fiction. He grew up in the Texas hill country and died in 1973.

Praise For…


"Memorable again, like Old Yeller."
Horn Book

"Gipson, again, has given us a purely wonderful hunk of Americana, and one of those rare books to be enjoyed on many latitudes of brow elevation."
Chicago Sunday Tribune

"The story itself isn't in any sense a children's book, though most teen-age readers will enjoy every exciting chapter. What Mr. Gipson has written is the story of a grim situation, a desperate chase, filled with brutality and heroism, yet he has written it with a sense of young wonder and even, at times, with humor."
New York Times Book Review
