    I think this is the first book that ever brought tears to my eyes.

    just read it again, man, I guess I'm a softy.

    somebody read this book and tell me if it brought a tear to your eyes.

    It'll take all of 20 minutes to read

    Old yeller, come back yeller, the best dang gone dog in the west ... I used to love that movie. I always found it quite amusing that the family who played it was the same family who played in Swiss Family Robinson, minus the father.
