Children • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1956

Actor Barry Corbin gives this classic story of an ugly, yellow stray dog a first-rate reading. Corbin's smooth, even-paced delivery and warm, friendly tone reflect the adventure, fun, and love shared by Old Yeller and 14-year-old Travis, and he thoughtfully communicates the heartbreak that comes when Travis must kill the loyal dog, who has been bitten by a rabid wolf. The abridgment is done well. The plot remains intact. What's missing is a small amount of the narrative that gives a strong sense of early frontier days in the Texas wilderness. This animal story is a good choice for families prepared to cry, as well as to laugh, together. C.R.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 96]
