D.J. Dillon's life is suddenly turned upside down when an outlaw bear attacks the family's small farm and kills their livestock. His father has forbidden the lonely boy to have a beautiful collie dog as a companion, but now decides that D.J. should have a hound to trail the bear. Against his will, D.J. is forced to accept an ugly mutt that is supposedly experienced at hunting bears. But at the first encounter with a bear, the dog is afraid and runs away. Instead of the father allowing D.J. to get rid of the dog, he has to keep and train him. This sets up suspenseful situations that plunge boy and dog into life-threatening experiences in the 10 novels in this series. In this first D.J. Dillon book, the mutt proves his courage in a final catastrophic encounter, and D.J. learns a life-lesson about judging people.

About the Author:

Lee Roddy is a former staff writer and researcher for a movie production company. He lives in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California and devotes his time to writing books and public speaking. He is a co-writer of the book which became the TV series, The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams. Born on an Illinois farm and reared on a California ranch, Lee Roddy grew up around hunters and trail hounds. As a boy, he began writing animal stories. He spent lots of time reading about dogs, horses, and other animals. These stories shaped his thinking and values before he went to Hollywood to write professionally. His Christian commitment later turned his writing talents to books like this one. He has written more than 60 books and co-authored another 10 titles. Buck Hudson, a long-time Roddy family friend, is a Christian layman who once hunted bears. He and the author's father, T.L. (Jack) Roddy, shared with the author many memories and details about bears and hounds. Since this story was written, laws have changed. It is now illegal for hunters to do some of the things described in this book. Other books by Lee Roddy are: Ladd Family Adventures; An American Adventure; D.J. Dillon Adventures; & Between Two Flags.
