Back cover copy

This is a tale about a dog we called Savage Sam. It's partly about me, too, and about Papa and Little Arliss and a girl named Lisbeth Searcy and some others. But it's mainly about Sam, on account of without him, there wouldn't have been much of a tale to tell or anybody left to tell it.

Review quote

"Gipson again has given us a purely wonderful trunk of Americana, and one of those rare books to be enjoyed on many latitudes of brow elevation.""--Chicago Sunday Tribune""The story itself is not in any sense a children's book, though most teenage readers will enjoy every exciting chapter. What Mr. Gipson has written is the story of a grim situation, a desperate chase, filled with brutality and heroism, yet he has written it with a sense of young wonder and even, at times, with humor."--Hal Borland, "New York Times Book Review"
