It is a tear jerker but all ends the way it should. It is about a Labrador dog and his adventures and how he grows to love a very sick Indian (the word used in the book) boy. Calling this historical fiction is just a bit of a stretch but it still qualifies. It is about life on an Indian reservation on Olympic Peninsula in Washington in the first part of the 1900s.

Calling this historical fiction is just a bit of a stretch but it still qualifies. It is about life on an Indian reservation on Olympic Peninsula in Washington in the first part of the 1900s. You get a real feel for the personality of the dog as well as of the Armstrong kids. The kids from the first family, were not as vividly drawn, probably deliberately. Beatty is too fine a writer to not write 3 dimensional characters and even the one that is pretty much a villain is shown as having a few (very few) decent points to him. Give to a kid that loves dog stories or wants an American based historical fiction.
