Super movie, but nothing beats the book. One day, Travis sets out to trap. But it still evoked the same emotions, especially at the end when I felt like crying - only to experience a smile wrench me back again. Travis Coates is a 14-year-old boy, left alone to protect his mother and younger brother on his family's 19th-century Texas homestead. She suggests shooting Old Yeller, but since he saved the family, Travis insists that they instead pen him in the and hope that he remains unaffected. A He would climb a tree, and Old Yeller would keep them close so he could lift them up one at a time. A part of the time, it's mighty good.
I finally got teary in the end when Travis has a conversation with his dad about Old Yeller. A frontier family survive with the help of this scoundrel dog. Travis's emotional arch is touching. I was not a big fan of this book. I'm so glad I gave this a go.
The words remain the same as back then. I started this with an audiobook from HarperCollins. With Travis as the narrator, you feel his emotions as he tells the story and you can see his character grow as he matures tremendously in the little time his father is gone. And a man can't afford to waste all the good part, worrying about the bad parts. Everything and everyone felt so real. We will not remove any content for bad language alone, or for being critical of a book. Let me say first that some love this book and to be fair I never read it except to get an idea of the story.
Travis is fourteen years old and yearns to be a man. I must be a dog mood. How fabulous that you read this to your kids! Do you want me to read? I cried at the end. I can't remember when I first read this classic. But mainly there's the corn patch. How fabulous that you read this to your kids! Heartbroken from the death of his beloved dog, Travis refuses the offer of a new puppy fathered by Old Yeller. A part of the time, it's mighty good.
Travis is extremely furious about it and wants to hurt the dog, but little Arliss insists they keep him. What I will say, i My mother read to us constantly when we were young, and still enjoys reading to us as adults. The climax in Old Yeller is when the dog, Old Yeller was fighting the wolf who had rabies and he got bit. Maybe the movie was in a more modern setting. The ending is sort of revealed within the first pages which spares the reader in a way. I recently borrowed it from the library to reacquaint myself with the story.
This is the first book that ever made me cry. It's not a thing you can forget. Not to mention some moments of political incorrectness. This is an excellent read for all ages. Lisbeth, who came to help out the family latterly when Travis gets involved in an accident, is a strange girl but she turns out well in the end and as for Old Yeller, what a fabulous find he turned out to be; saving the family on various occasions from some possibly very unfortunate outcomes. First The Call of the Wild, and now this.
I would read it during my study period in the 4th grade each day for almost 2 weeks it was my class copy-- so I had to keep putting it back and hoping no one else would take it. Old Yeller attacks it and rescues Travis, who escapes with a badly hurt leg. When Bell died, Travis cried for a week and vowed never to have another dog. What a dog that Yeller. We are looking on to Savage Sam now and hope it's as good. I heard two radio dramas based on this incident- my guess he shot them. I felt like they were living and breathing.
I am getting old enough that it is quite possible I read this classic tale many years ago, but I sure don't remember it. I know how he felt. Travis hadthe difficult choice to either tie Yeller up and let him die a slowand painful death, or shoot him. Η μετάφραση δείχνει τα χρόνια της, αλλά μου φάνηκε αρκούντως γλαφυρή και ικανοποιητική, το μόνο σίγουρο είναι ότι απόλαυσα την κάθε σελίδα του ωραίου αυτού μυθιστορήματος. The mother in the story tries to protect young Arliss, from some of the ugly reality they must face as well as the consequences of letting his imagination run wild. I think the only character we found annoying was Bud Searcy and mainly because he was too chatty and lazy.
She asked if I had read it. That makes it all bad. Having learned about Old Yeller, he explains the facts about life and death to Travis. I get tired of encountering men who don't know what it means to be a man, who don't speak the truth, who don't keep their word, who show no respect, who look for the easy way out, who show no backbone, and have few principles. One adds the latter point as there are no motor vehicles such as trucks, cars, etc in the movie version. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
Travis unsuccessfully tries to drive the dog away, but Arliss likes him and defends him from Travis. My mother read to us constantly when we were young, and still enjoys reading to us as adults. It is an animal fiction the Boy and Dog variety and is unusual as it has a tragic ending. Yet, I suspect what has endeared several generations to this film may be its themes of love and loss. The ultimate test for this incredible young man and was I impressed. It's a wonderful story of perseverance and self-sacrifice in the face of drought, wild hogs, hydrophobia, and other dangers. You take care of mama and Little Arliss.
