Start your review of Red Dog. Dec 20, Michael Ripsch rated it it was amazing. That book was mostly about the relationship between a kid and a dog.
In the whole book Adam and Ruff were best friends. Ruff was the dog and Adam was the boy. The time period was a long time ago when they did not have states yet.
They lived in the Wyoming territory and they owned lots of land. The book was the most emotional book I ever read, but it was also one of the best.
May 23, Hunter Falish added it. What an adventurous book this is. Adam and his mother and younger sister move in with there new step dad, and are trying to get used to their new life out in the wilderness.
Adam likes to challenge his new stepfather, to make him have to show his superiority over Adam. Adam comes to enjoy his new life out in the wilderness, until one day a group of prospectors crosses their land.
His mother holds a gun ready to fire on the men, and tells them they have no right to be on the property, and that if What an adventurous book this is.
His mother holds a gun ready to fire on the men, and tells them they have no right to be on the property, and that if they don't leave immediately she'll shoot.
After the men leave, Adam and his sister have to be accompanied by an adult at all times when they head outside. Adam learned to trap with his stepfather during this time, and things were turning out well between the two of them, until the day his stepfather had to bring in their furs to sell for supplies.
Adam became the man of the house for three days while his step dad was away, and everything would have gone well, except for the fact that the three prospectors unexpectedly showed up again while his stepfather was gone.
They were harsh men, that forced them to do everything for them, and were going to kill them after Adam's stepfather returned and they took him out.
As it turns out, Adam manages to escape that night, but there's one problem. His stepfather found him a red hound, that took a great liking to Adam, and the prospectors have turned the dog loose on his trail.
I enjoyed how it took Adam a long time to accept his new stepfather, and how realistic this part of the book was, as I know from friends that this is not always the easiest thing to do.
I also enjoyed the suspense that occurred while Adam's puppy was tracking him, with the three prospectors following close behind. The only thing I didn't like, was the fact that the men were going to kill the whole family just to look for gold on a piece of property that they didn't even know if it contained gold or not.
I would recommend this book to any young adult who enjoys a suspenseful book. May 20, Craig LaSalle added it. I don't know why I read this. Maybe because my family had dogs.
I loved it so much, and it was all mine. No one I've ever met has told me how much they loved this book. It made me love reading when I was a second or third grader.
It was magical, and I am so grateful to Mr. Mar 10, Gretchen Mueller rated it really liked it. Thought out the story, Adam, I young boy who lives with his family in the woods encounters many different struggles.
First off, his father had recently passed away and his mother had remarried. This puts a very big stress on Adam because he doesn't get along with his new stepfather.
However, that is not the biggest problem at hand. A group of men come to Adam's house and try to force them to give up their land so they can search it for gold.
Adam's stepfather then leaves the house and goes to ge Thought out the story, Adam, I young boy who lives with his family in the woods encounters many different struggles.
Adam's stepfather then leaves the house and goes to get the house deed to prove that the land is their's.
While he is away, the house is attacked, and Adam has to protect his sister and mother. Eventually he escapes the house to try and lead the men away from his family and go find His stepfather.
However, his dog follows him and leads the men right to him, but then the mountain lion that him and the red pup had hunter prior to these events saves them.
It turns out that Adam's stepfather had retrieved the pup from a cave in the woods, not knowing that the mountain lion had been taking care of it.
In the end the mountain lion ends up saving the red pup and all of Adam's family. One thing I really liked about this book was that there weren't really any down times.
There was always something going on in the book that kept you questioning what would happen next and it makes u want to keep reading.
One thing I didn't like about this book was that it didn't give very much background information, it doesn't tell you much about before the family moved into the mountains and it doesn't give that much information about Adam's stepfather.
If I had to suggest this book to a specific group of people I would suggest it to young teenagers who like the outdoors and survival stories.

Unfortunately, the men let the red pup loose, and the one thing that dog does best is track I recommend this book to anyone who loves a great adventure.
This was one of my absolute favorite books from childhood. I read it over and over again when I was little.
I'm much older now, but still thought of it when I thought of my favorite books of all time and decided to see if I could find it. I loved the historical setting and the main protagonist.
I particularly identified with the little boy's conflict with his family while still at the same time loving them. I loved the angst and hurt of the little boy.

Sep 27, Lindsay Boitnott rated it it was amazing Shelves: historical-fiction , all-time-favorites , great-outdoors , survival. I am finally getting around to sharing my review of the last book in my Back to School series, Red Dog.
Honestly, this is the perfect time of year to talk about this story, as I first discovered the works of Bill Wallace one amazing afternoon in my elementary school library.
They were never assigned reading, but I read every available book by Wallace in one year probably all before the winter break. And Red Dog is my favorite.
Actually, Red Dog will likely always be a favorite! While rereading I am finally getting around to sharing my review of the last book in my Back to School series, Red Dog.
I had to know what would happen to Adam and his pup, and I found myself grumbling at any distraction. So, yes this will be a glowing review.
Bill Wallace had this expert way of sharing life lessons disguised as a spellbinding adventure! In Red Dog, Adam is forced to let go of childish insecurities, learn how to properly treat animals, and develop a better understanding of his changed family dynamics.
The lessons are at times painful, but the writing shows readers the necessity of choosing to be a better person. This is a reminder from which everyone, both young and old, can benefit.
Just know that the vivid imagery and heart racing scenes will stick with you long after turning that last page. I do have a few less than positive points that sadly have to be shared.
First, Adam is a royal pain for the first third of the book; whining and fighting against his mom and step-father. Second, Wallace does not shy away from violence.
Red Dog is set during the gold rush and the characters live in the Wyoming wilderness, days away from any town. Wallace does not sugar-coat the unfortunate reality that some people do not have good intentions, which results in a couple of gruesome moments.
Both of these aspects mold this story and are necessary. I have lost count of the number of times I have read Red Dog. I have my own copy of the story and now, so does godson.
This is the story I share with parents requesting book for their kids. Wallace was my favorite author and his stories helped shape my childhood.
Here were these amazing books that offered an escape to the wilderness when I was stuck inside, and Wallace promised a grand adventure that usually included a cute dog.
I blame Wallace for sparking my love of thriller and mystery fiction, and am forever grateful for finding him on that shelf.
I would love to hear what you think of his stories. Lindsay Check out more reviews at HistoryMysteryBooks. Mar 05, Christy Johnson rated it liked it Shelves: childrens , historical-fiction.
I read this with a group of 6 fifth graders. At first they were not interested but that quickly changed add the story progressed.
Adam, his sister Laurie, and his mother have just moved to a mountain homestead in Wyoming with his mother's new husband Sam. Hurting after his father's death and resentful of Sam for 'taking his place', Adam does not try to adapt to his new normal.
He is resistant, disrespectful, angry, and conflicted. His one joy is a loveable red pup that Sam brought hom 3. His one joy is a loveable red pup that Sam brought home for him.
However, as three dangerous prospectors move into their land while Sam is away Adam has to learn to step up to responsibility and protecting his family becomes his highest priority.
No one knew how much the red dog would play an important part in this. This was an enjoyable read. Audio the beginning of the book, we had discussions about how Adam's surly behavior was impacting those around him and better choices he could make.
We could discuss how his choices changed him and how those around responded differently to him. Adam had a lot of positive character growth.
There are moments of violence and death, but they certainly are not gratuitous or explicit and serve to heighten the severity of Adam's situation. I'll definitely keep this on the list to read with students next year.
Sep 07, Marlee rated it it was ok. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here.
There was way too much going graphic violence and death in this book for my liking. I think my daughter felt the same way.
It was also uncomfortable to her that the family found it normal to use a switch for punishment. The book also dragged in some places.
Aug 19, Mariah Meetze rated it it was amazing. Adam, his best friend the red pup, and his family live in the Wyoming territory. Three gold prospectors come uninvited into the cabin and hold the family at gunpoint when Adam's stepfather leaves for a week-long trip to Cheyenne.
Adam finds a way to escape, and when the men find out they let the red pup loose who is best at tracking Adam. Adam must find a way to outwit them and save his family.
I highly recommend this sad and heartfelt book to ages 10 and up. Feb 15, Courtney rated it really liked it. Adam is mad at his stepfather for making them move to were they have no neighbors and is surrounded be woods.
But when his stepfather goes on a trip four men come and break into their cabin and hold his family hostage. Adam is able to escape but is he able to warn his stepfather about the danger that awaits him back at the cabin.
Mar 22, Julia Forrester rated it it was amazing. Great adventure book, geared towards boys 14 years old. This is a great coming of age book about a boy learning about responsibility out in the wild woods, loyalty and love.
Aug 10, Becky rated it liked it. Great story. Got this one to read aloud to the children, ended up putting it down bc it was too violent for them and I finished myself.
My kids are 7 and 10, maybe geared for a little bit older depending on what your kids are used to. Aug 29, Twyla rated it really liked it Shelves: auryn-s-books , auryn-read-in My favorite part was when Sam was not hurt and managed to save Adam and Laurie.
My least favorite part was when the three men came and took Adam and his family prisoner's to try get the land from them in order to find the gold in the river.
Feb 12, tina winkeler rated it it was amazing. It was so sad when shamatok died but it's a great amazing book. May 09, Galiya Shaw rated it it was amazing Shelves: galiya.
This book is very amazing. Aug 14, Phylisha Stone rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: anyone who loves good childrens literature.
A wonderful book about a boy and his dog in the wilds of Wyoming. Oct 09, Bexa rated it liked it Shelves: family , childrens , fiction , historical-fiction , battle-of-the-books.
I hope that the men found out who was responsible and went and performed a little vigilante justice of their own. Justifiable homicide for sure.
People make me so upset sometimes, especially where animals are involved. This was in the 70s and the outback towns were small, where everyone knew each other and knew the Red Dog.
It was simply amazing to read, such a joy and delight! And though the author was not Australian, he did a pretty good job at writing a book about Australians, set in Australia.
There were a couple of misuses of the word 'dag', and maybe one or two other things that weren't natural or were a bit too OTT, but apart from that it was really well done and just the sort of thing I needed to read.
A beautiful dog and the beautiful outback - even if the ending did damn well destroy me. I seriously need to go and find the most cheerful book on my shelf right now after that!
Sep 16, Gwyn rated it really liked it. If this author didn't have a bestseller or five already under his belt, I'd like to have heard him try and pitch this book to a publisher- "Well, it's a collection of true stories about a flatulent red dog in Western Australia, and, along the way, we all learn something about human nature, the immigrant experience and the incipient stirrings of a new culture in the Southern hemisphere.
Written in a style and vocabulary that wouldn't challenge your average year-old, Red Dog relates stories as told to the author by people who actually knew the titular beastie.
It won't take you more than a couple of hours to read the whole book, but even so, I'd recommend reading it a chapter at a time over several days as its effects are subtle and you'll be sorry you finished it so quickly.
I can't think of another book that covers this kind of ground so well. Sep 26, Mozette rated it really liked it.
I firstly went to see the movie - as it was out on the big screen and I didn't know it was a book before a movie. Then, I went out to look at how much the book was and found it was far too expensive to purchase it for myself; however that afternoon, Mum bought it for me!
How's that for fate! I was supposed to read this book! I loved Red Dog. His character is strong in this book. I laughed out loud to the stories in this book; no matter how far-fetched they seem.
But, it looks like you have to be I firstly went to see the movie - as it was out on the big screen and I didn't know it was a book before a movie.
But, it looks like you have to be a dog owner to know exactly what Red Dog went through This is a great, touching and brilliant book. Makes me want to get another dog; and I look at dogs differently again Red Dog was a friend to all.
I had already watched movie about The Red Dog. I picked up the book due to beautiful, minimalistic illustrations inside. The book was a quick read.
But, I felt I had better hold on these locations now. The selfless bond between different people of Pilbara and the red dog was sweet.

Red Dog was a Red Cloud kelpie, full of character with an insatiable appetite and an even larger appetite for a wandering life, always managing to find any action to be found.
I can see why Louis de Bernieres became obsessed with Red Dog's story and the massive impact he made on countless people and other animals.
He became renowned throughout North-Western Australia ensuring his legend remains. Very few dogs get such literal and figurative mileage out of life.
I love my dogs above all else and I Red Dog was a Red Cloud kelpie, full of character with an insatiable appetite and an even larger appetite for a wandering life, always managing to find any action to be found.
I love my dogs above all else and I love, love Red Dog for his intelligence, friendly companionship, and above all his indomitable spirit.
Sep 06, Erin Wasley rated it did not like it. This is the reason Australian stories shouldn't be written by non-Australians. This collection of awkwardly phrased sentences - which relied on a plethora of unnecessary drawings to reach the page numbers required to be published as a book - is an insult to anyone who considers themselves Australian.
The book is populated with caricatures and offensive stereotypes that make Australians look mentally deficient.
The movie was a heartwrenching look at the loneliness of Northern WA mixed with down to This is the reason Australian stories shouldn't be written by non-Australians.
The movie was a heartwrenching look at the loneliness of Northern WA mixed with down to earth humour and a message of mateship. The book is, in a single word, disappointing.
Sep 14, Dana Nucera rated it it was amazing. I loved this little book. I read it in one day. It's a true story about a dog that lived in Australia and belonged to everyone.
It is hard to believe this dog did the things that people say he did, but being a dog lover I believe every word of it.
If you ever looked at a dog and wondered what he would say if he could talk, then you should read this book. Mar 01, Rylee Batzkiel added it. My book was Red Dog.
I think it was one of the most emotional I have ever felt reading a book. If you are looking for a good heartfelt laugh or cry, this is the book for you.
Usually I don't get too emotionally invested with humans, but with this dog it was a different story. He had so many good things in his life, like the people who treated him like his best friends.
No matter what the towns he traveled from and too, he always had a good meal and a place to sleep. This book also shows how many My book was Red Dog.
This book also shows how many bad people there are in this world. Sometimes, Red Dog had to go through really bad stuff, like beatings and even gunshots, when Red Dog didn't do anything.
One of the worst things to me is abusing an animal who does no harm to you. It makes absolutely zero sense to me. That is why this book had me on an emotional rollercoaster.
I recommend this book completely. Feb 16, Amy rated it liked it. Actual rating: 3. Yay, go Red Dog I was feeling a little sad and miserable this week and needed something fun to cheer me up so I chose Red Dog by Louis De Bernieres, it was perfect I, like pretty much the entire population of Australia was charmed off my feet when the movie Red Dog was released a few years ago, it was such a nice simple story for all Aussies and animal lovers, I never really thought I'd read the book because I'd read Captain Corelli's Mandolin by De Bernieres and found it such a tire however Red Dog is so different and so much better.
For starters, you'd never know this book wasn't written by a local Australian person, he gets the dialect and way of life so down pat, it's a true accomplishment really as getting Australia right in movies, books and television is very hard for a non-Australian to do.
The story of Red aka Bluey is so beautiful, it's a wonderful little tale of a dog who belonged to no one but loved by everyone, made all the more better for me because I knew and was very good friends with a dog just like Red, his name wasn't Red but he was everyone's mate and had the soul of a human, so intelligent.
I'm really happy that I read this book, it was the perfect pick me up Funny, charming and very Australian I'll raise a glass tonight for Red Aug 27, Jack Pringle rated it liked it.
I chose to read this book as it was a suggestion from my sister and i had also just seen the new movie on Red Dog.
This book fits under the 'book that has been made into a film' section on the wide reading bingo board. My favourite quote from this book is "get him out before he demolishes the whole place.
I found this to be a relevant quote to Red Dogs character as he was a wild, free and messy dog. I also found this quote interesting because I can relate to the the messy nature of a dog because I chose to read this book as it was a suggestion from my sister and i had also just seen the new movie on Red Dog.
I also found this quote interesting because I can relate to the the messy nature of a dog because i have a dog of my own. My favourite character in the this book is obviously Red Dog as he the highlight and comedy center of this short novel.
He seems to get up to many mischievous things such as: Red dog at the beach BBQ, when he steels the juicy steak from the grill.
I learn't from this book that you should never be held at home. I would recommend this book to children and adults of any ages because anyone can read this book and think about Red Dog in any way of his character Jun 29, Gemma Nugent rated it really liked it Shelves: library , audio-book.
I saw the Red Dog movie last year, and I did love it. But it is typical for me to prefer the book to the movie and this was no exception.
Mind you, being a native Western Australian, I have been to some of the places where these stories are set so perhaps it is easier for me to visualise the scenery and the local atmosphere.
In any event, this is a much loved tale in our north west, and I think De Berniere did it good justice. It's quite hard to believe that he isn't a native Australian, he did I saw the Red Dog movie last year, and I did love it.
It's quite hard to believe that he isn't a native Australian, he did an excellent job of capturing the dialogue and the general feeling in some of WA's mining towns.
It was good to read about a time when there was still a sense of community in those places, which I suspect has been largely lost with the dominance of the fly-in fly-out workforce in the iron ore industry.
Anyway, maybe I'm a bit of a softy for a story about a kelpie, but as testament to the depth of emotion that these stories triggered in me, I found myself in tears when John died and again of course when Red Dog meets his own end.
Mar 17, Bonny rated it it was amazing. This is a remarkable story about a dog who has friends all over Western Australia. He is a free spirit and roams where he pleases making friends wherever he goes.
If you have a dog, if you like dogs or even if you want to read a story about dogs and their human friends, you have to read this book. Seriously, this is arguably the best dog story I have ever read.
It's a bit unusual because it's not a cute, feel good fiction story but the book is a memoir to a real dog.
If you like dogs or any other animal fir that matter, read this book. I rarely read any book more than once, but I'm starting right back at the beginning, right now.
It is a short book but very enjoyable. Seems like a slow start, in which you think that it is just a collection of stories about a semi wild dog in the Australian outback.
And well, this could be the case. But as you move along it starts to grow on you. The style is convincing and you slowly forget you are reading a book.
Didn't really think I will like it when I started off, but by the end I started thinking I need to read something else by Louis. Or maybe that is just my love for animals and my deeply buried faith in human goodness Seems like a slow start, in which you think that it is just a collection of stories about a semi wild dog in the Australian outback.

People have been raving about the film, some saying its life changing, others that they are not sure why but that it means so much to them, that it has made them feel.
On the whole the stories are beautiful. Filled with compassion and love for a dog with immense spirit and love. Anyone who loves dogs, and anyone who understands that dogs are mans best friend, and smarter than they are given credit for.
The writing style is easy, and a young teen could pick it up and read it with no problems. I c People have been raving about the film, some saying its life changing, others that they are not sure why but that it means so much to them, that it has made them feel.

A very easy read by my favourite author. Red Dog is the story of a dog who belongs to no one in particular but he does have a best mate and goes wherever he pleases.
Mostly fictional but de Bernieres did spend a couple of weeks in WA researching. Had a little tear in the end but I found all the short stories inside completely delightful.
Jan 07, Looosie rated it it was amazing. This book will always get me. It's inspirational, uplifting and heartwarming.
I don't think I had ever read a book that has made me feel just about every emotion possible, before this one. The characters are high spirited, lovable Australians and the dog You can't help but love him.
I would suggest that at some point, everybody animal lover or not should read this book. Jul 19, Anthony Cassidy rated it really liked it.
Although I have seen the movie a number of times, I enjoyed the book, mostly because of the many characters, but also it was charming in the way it was told in two parts, In times of John, and post John.
Red dog was as much a character of the times, as well as a dog for all people, and a unique fixture of the North-West of our great state,and remembered in bronze just to top it all off.
A fun read. Apr 09, Karen Jeffery rated it it was amazing. Listened to this as an audio book whilst on a road trip up the west coast of Australia.
The surroundings, along with the fact that we had just recently lost our dog Sam at a ripe old age of 20 , this book was just beautiful to me I fell in love with red dog and his story.
It made me laugh and also had me in tears.
