James Arthur Kjelgaard imbued each of his many books for children with his two great loves: nature and dogs. Although born in New York City, he spent his childhood living on farms located in the Allegheny Mountain Range that runs through the state of Pennsylvania. Combining his personal experiences of the wild country he know as a boy with the animals he came to know and love, Kjelgaard wrote many popular animal stories for children before his untimely death at the age of forty-eight. As a young man, Kjelgaard held various jobs--trapper, laborer, and surveyor’s assistant--but in 1938, at age twenty-eight, he decided to focus his energies on writing stories for children. He began setting down his own recollections of the woodland regions of North American and from there fashioned stories featuring colorful, enigmatic characters long with, of course, dogs. "Story hunts have led me from the Atlantic to the Pacific,
and from the Arctic Circle to Mexico City," Kjelgaard
once wrote in Young Wings. "Stories, like gold, are where
you find them. You may discover one three thousand miles from home or . . . right on your own doorstep." Kjelgaard’s "story hunts" yielded a wealth of colorful
tales which continue to bring his great love of both the wilderness and his many canine friends to life for young readers.

I read a million of these dog books as a kid-- for a year or so, Kjelgaard was my favorite author. Only slightly spoiled by my dad telling me that Irish Setters are the dimmest of the dim dogs.

Good dog story I read at a young age (13?).

A good survival tale of a racing dog in the desert. By author of Big Red. I'm guessing on when I read it.

I was impressed by this book I read when quite young. An Apache youth escapes from a white school to go back to his people. One memory I have of it is that he had to eat a frog! Good story. Just a guess on the date.
