Kjelgaard, Jim: Big Red. v2. 13 Oct 2011
My first contribution to the library; I hope it passes muster.
Jim Kjelgaard was one of the very first authors that I ever went looking for, and Big Red was the first of his stories that I read. I hesitate to call it Young Adult, but Children seem to be too young. Many of Jim's works were serialized in 'Boys Life' magazine (the magazine of the Boy Scouts of America) in the '50s.
It is the story of a teenage boy, living with his dad in the wilderness, who finds a most remarkable dog, and, in taking care of the dog, grows into a man.
If I can get permission from the artist, I will add the illustrations which came along with the scans. They are also wonderful.
v2 uploaded. Added in-line Contents, and made style sheet consistent with Irish Red and Outlaw Red. - 13 Oct 2011

This brings back memories. Growing up, I read all the Jim Kjelgaard books. Thanks, pholy!

Thank you for posting this! I read all the author's books I could find, both fiction and nonfiction, when I was a kid. I remember "Hi Jolly" being the first I'd heard about the U.S. Camel Corps.

As I recall Disney made a movie version of this story starring Walter Pigeon. They changed a few details around of course.
