From the Inside Flap
The stray dog was ugly, and a thieving rascal, too. But he sure was clever, and a smart dog could be a big help on the wild Texas frontier, especially with Papa away on a long cattle drive up to Abilene.
Strong and courageous, Old Yeller proved that he could protect Travis's family from any sort of danger. But can Travis do the same for Old Yeller?--Saturday Review of Literature --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

i'm guessing most of you know this story but I was surprised to find out that the end was revealed in the second paragraph. (see above)
Now, I did not choose to read this book again. Reading it in my youth was enough for me. But, my son choose this book for his current reading assignment (classic novel) and we read together every night. I warned him that the story would be sad but he had his mind made up.
So, we read it and I was fine... up until the shooting part. After that, I couldn't hide my tears. Maybe if I wasn't reading aloud, but it was obvious. And, my son laughed. Then he took the book from me and read a page or two until I decided I could handle reading again... barely. A least my crying made the story less sad for him.
People who want to cry... ;) No, seriously I think this book would be good for people who like to read about pioneer times or um... people who like to cry about animals.

Although it is aimed at children it has a broad appeal. My family listened to it in the car on holiday and everyone was enthralled.
Add to that Barry Corbin's superb reading and this is one of very few products I would rate 5+ if there was such an option.
