    You know when you remember a book from your childhood but you only recall a few details not the title of course so you try and Google it and you get a hit? Yeah me neither But you have to get lucky sometimes right? WELL THAT JUST HAPPENED TO ME WITH THIS BOOK I remember reading this as a dog crazy 10 yr old many many many years ago It was where I first read the term Badlands and wondered why anyone would choose to live somewhere that sounded scary I also recall wondering how someone would get so lucky as to just find a dog and be able to keep it forever and ever I desperately wanted a dog but was never allowed to have one In fairness my parents had enough on their plates with three kids but stillthat dream never did die Which is how I've ended up owning dogs for almost my entire adult lifeI'm so glad I was able to find this and now I'm rating it 4 nostalgic stars because I'm a grown up and I can do what I want So there

    A great story about a boy and a dog’s relationship and connection in conflict with the boy’s sense of loyalty and responsibility as a sheepman Nothing like a good dog book

    To be honest although the writing style is a tad dated I really liked this book It is a dog against nature kind of tale and I was drawn through the story to the end There was little romance or violence but enough conflict to keep you reading on and rooting for Buster who has to survive a major winter storm in the sheep country of North Dakota We see this overgrown and perhaps a bit flabby city dog grow into a magnificent canine who retains just enough dog to make him truly a hero
