*"Sure-fire combination of a boy and dog. When they meet, it is love at first sight, and so will it be for all who read the story."
"A story of love and understanding....Absorbing reading."
From the Publisher
From the moment Danny sees the beautiful Irish setter, he knows Red is the dog for him. Fast and smart, strong and noble, Red is the only dog Danny wants by his side. Soon, neither boy nor dog can stand to be apart. Together Danny and Red face many dangers in the harsh Wintapi wilderness that they call home. But the greatest test of their courage and friendship will come from an enemy more cunning than any they've known before--a bear who is the undisputed king of the wilderness, a savage killer called Old Majesty. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I was a bit heart broken but realized there are all sorts of different readers and kids out there. They don't have to be the same. Another reviewer who quite love Big Red said it perfectly: it is for the sort of kids who are patient readers. Those who are willing to let things develop slowly. As a city boy reading it for the first time, Big Red introduced me to a different world. It is still teaching me lessons: kids are what they are, not what we want them to be.
My husband told me the books in this series is great for any kid that loves dogs and or hunting. If the kids love the things they are reading about they will read the books and want to read more of them. This is what is happening with out grandson. Before I had to threaten him to read books for his AR points for school, he knows now there are books about subjects he likes.
