Old Yeller

"All the heart, all the excitement of a great frontier adventure!"

Old Yeller is a captivating tale of two boys and their dog. Travis and Arliss live on a farm in the state of Texas with their parents Jim and Katie. Because money is tight in this post-Civil War era, Jim must leave to drive a herd of cattle north to sell, putting his teenage son Travis in charge of the farm. Travis and his brother Arliss have many adventures during the few months that their father is away and most of them have a lot to do with a certain furry friend.

When Travis meets Old Yeller, he finds the dog to be a nuisance. But with his soft-hearted brother Arliss’ help, he learns to accept him as a friend. The boys make some wonderful memories with Old Yeller by their side but they also find the dog to be indispensable in times of trouble. With Old Yeller they escape an angry mother bear, save the family's corn crop, rescue a cow and her calf, encounter a wild boar and face the threats of a wolf.

This is a heart-warming story of friendships, second chances and the loyalty of a dog to his family.
