I can only conclude that there must be something terribly wrong with me that I would embark on a third reading of Old YellerIt s madness It s the only explanationI just felt as though my 10 year old was ready And she was I guess I felt ready again tooSo we took on this 117 page classic from 1956 together even though it had broken my heart twice beforeI was wondering if this daughter would consider the language dated but no she took it all in stride She was surprisingly unfazed that Pa had once had to kill a Comanche Ma had to skin a deer and Travis had to shoot several small animals It was life in the 1800s in the wild frontier that was Texas and times weren t what they are now And yet when we got to the first of the two pivotal parts of the heart breaking plot she jumped up and shouted WHY ARE YOU MAKING ME LISTEN TO THIS I asked her Would you like me to stop She sat back down and answered No When we got to the second sad part of the story I collapsed in deep sobs but I still heard her little voice say Mom it s like Charlotte s Web all over again Do you want me to read I pulled myself together and we finished the last part the part that s so soul crushing you almost can t get through it But like life you prevailIn the end we were holding each other by the forearms foreheads pressed together shaking and sobbing When we stopped crying I asked her Do you wish I hadn t read it to youShe paused then answered Yes No I don t know I worried I d made a bad decision as a mother Asked her How many stars would you give it She looked up at me like I was an idiot and said Five stars OBVIOUSLY Now the thing to do Papa went on is to try to forget it and go on being a man How I asked How can you forget a thing like that He studied me for a moment then shook his head I guess I don t uite mean that he said It s not a thing you can forget What I mean is things like that happen They may seem mighty cruel and unfair but that s how life is part of the time But that isn t the only way life is A part of the time it s mighty good And a man can t afford to waste all the good part worrying about the bad parts That makes it all bad You understand

Free read ´ Old Yeller ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Courageous Old Yeller proved that he could protect Travis's family from any sort of danger But can Travis do the same for Old Yelle. This review is for mothers and fathers of sons written by a man with no children Forgive my presumptuousness but please don t let my lack of experience stop you from reading Here s the story of Old Yeller Daddy Mama young son and early teenage son live as a family on the Texas frontier To provide for the family Daddy has to go on a cattle drive to Kansas Before he leaves Daddy takes the oldest son aside and tells him he is going to have to be the man of the house since Daddy will be gone the next few monthsWhen you get to this anachronistic charge you may be tempted to throw the book down and dismiss the entire book as patriarchal and condescending If you have sons keep reading You might even consider having your sons read this book In truth Old Yeller is the timeless story of the journey a boy goes through to become a man 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 In short men who refuse to accept responsibility I suspect these men have been shielded from hard and unpleasant tasks and by being so protected they fail to learn to do the right thing regardless of its difficultyI have seen Old Yeller on film two or three times and had read the book in years past multiple times I thought I was ready I really didLast Sunday I put my faithful dog to sleepIt was the right and merciful thing to doIt still broke my heart
