Letter from Fred Gipson regarding Old Yeller

Old Yeller is the beloved tale of a boy and his loyal, clever, “big yeller” dog. It was published to instant acclaim and has become one of the most beloved children’s classics ever written. Author Fred Gipson sent this handwritten note to his editor at Harper, in praise of the “red bound edition of Old Yeller,”—calling it “one of my few proud possessions.”
