"Sure-fire combination of boy and dog. When they meet, it is love at first sight, and so it will be for all who read the story." --Library Journal
"A moving and exciting story of a boy's love for a dog. The feeling of the woods and the outdoors comes through with complete reality." --Chicago Sun-Times
"(A) tale which paints the stern life of the wilderness in strong, clear strokes." --New York Times
"A really good dog story written with power and discernment. Anyone who loves dogs...will be enthusiastic about Big Red." --Elementary English
"It is obviously based upon observation and experience. The background is vivid, the human and animal relationships clear cut and convincing." --Saturday Review
"No one can write a better animal tale than Jim Kjelgaard" --May Hill Arbuthnot
Jim Kjelgaard spent his boyhood in country much like that described in this book. "Those mountain farms", he remembers, "produced more rocks to the acre than anything else. But they provided my brothers and me with plenty of ammunition for fighting the neighboring boys across the creek. One of our jobs was to shoo the cows out of the corn patch, which was more exciting than it sounds. There were always two or three yearling bulls in the dairy herd, and when we wanted to get home quickly, we'd each grab one by the tail. The bulls would light out for the barn, their feet hitting the ground about every two yards, and ours in proportion. But the really entrancing thing was the forest that surounded us: mountains filled with game, and trout streams loaded with fish." Jim's first book was "Forest Patrol", based on the wilderness experiences of himself and his brother, a forest ranger. "Big Red," "Irish Red," and "Outlaw Red" are dog stories about Irish setters.

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.
