A wily stray, Old Yeller helps Travis and his family stay safe from the many dangers of the wild Texas frontier in this heartwarming tale of the Old West.
The stray dog was ugly, and a thieving rascal, too. But he sure was clever; and a smart dog could be a big help on the wild Texas frontier, especially with Papa away on a long cattle drive up to Abilene.
