"I knelt down and gathered them into my arms. I buried my face between their wiggling bodies and cried. The stationmaster, sensing something more than two dogs and a boy, waited in silence."
My Dad didn’t grow up in the Ozarks, but he trapped animals as a young boy to raise money for a dog. Selling skins to Sears Roebuck & Co. was enough then to fulfill that dream and then later to get him enough money to fly enough hours to be conscripted (after being declared 4F) to train pilots at Americus, Georgia. When he was able to return to being a civilian pilot, the first thing he did with the money he saved was to buy another dog. On multiple levels, I felt this story to be so close to my father’s, both coming from rural, impoverished areas.
“Men, said Mr. Kyle, “people have been trying to understand dogs ever since the beginning of time. One never knows what they’ll do. You can read every day where a dog saved the life of a drowning child, or lay down his life for his master. Some people call this loyalty. I don’t. I may be wrong, but I call it love – the deepest kind of love.”
This is such a wonderful story; I highly recommend you read it. Re-read it, if you read it as a child.
Coming of age & adventure story.
4 1/2 stars, 5 possible
This is a sweet coming of age story, Ten year old Billy becomes “infected” with the desire to own not one, but two dogs. Every single night Billy dreams about owning two coon dogs, no boy could want them more than him. His heart is torn because he is a very poor farm boy in the Ozarks and two coon dogs cost $50, which is out of reach for his father. Nightly Billy would cry himself to sleep and then his heart aches as he awakes each morning.
At eleven years old Billy came up with a way to get his coon dogs, he would earn the money himself. Billy found all kinds of ways to earn a few cents here and there from running errands, selling berries, minnows to fishermen as well as trapping and selling furs. After two years Billy earned enough money to buy his hounds. Billy trains the two pups and names them Old Dan and Little Ann, learning that Old Dan had the brawn & Little Ann has the brains. Together they roam the hills of the Ozarks hunting coon and their mischievous tricks to try to get away.
