From the Inside Flap
A loving threesome, they ranged the dark hills and river bottoms of Cherokee country. Old Dan had the brawn, Little Ann had the brains -- and Billy had the will to train them to be the finest hunting team in the valley. Glory and victory were coming to them, but sadness waited too. And close by was the strange and wonderful power that's only found...
An exciting tale of love and adventure you'll never forget.

I read this after lunch, one or two chapters at a time and when I had to stop to get on with other areas of the curriculum , it was always to loud complaints. When the final page was read, sadly, one of my girls jumped up and ran to the restroom sobbing. That's the king of novel this is.
Nonetheless, a good enough yarn of turn of the century (20th) USA.
I gave it five stars because it is one of the best books I've read and I would not only recommend it to dog-lovers but anyone who loves to read books that show great friendship or true heartbreak.
Son ( loves books he noticed it was based on a book ) he’s not put it down , will be reading it after him. Not often a book he really likes but this one in his words it’s great mum
