    I read so many Kjelgaard books when I was a kid. They stand out just as much as the stories of Albert Payson Terhune and more than Lassie Come-Home. Now, I have to ask why is it always a boy and his dog? Girls have dogs too. Anyway, Outlaw Red was my favorite Kjelgaard book, mainly because the boy wasn't in it that much. It's a good adventure story about a dog. Thrilling.

    The book "Outlaw Red" is a great book. I read this book because its about hunting and the outdoor nature. I like how the author made good things and bad things happen throughout the book. There are parts in the book that are exciting then there are parts when the family's close friend dog died. This book is about a normal family that loves to hunt. The family has a really talented dog that can chase down any small game animal. The main dog of the story is Sean. He was very talented and his owners loved him a lot. The family lived in a decent house out in the country surrounded by the woods with lot of hunting property.The author has written another dog book called "Snow Dog." It has the same characters in it as "Outlaw Red." I haven't read "Snow Dog" yet, but I think that is going to be the next book I'm going to read because I liked the book I just finished.I would recommend this book to boys around the ages of 10-16 who like the outdoors. I would also recommend this book to people who want to get involved with the outdoors.

    Also read this one a long, long time ago, but it was someone else's used copy, which was falling apart and missing several pages. I probably would have enjoyed it more if it hadn't been missing pages. As it stands, I hardly remember anything, save a few opening bits.

    Again, another great book from the "Big Red" series. I love how each Irish Setter in each book has a unique personality. It prevents the series from being repetitive and keeps the reader interested. Sean was certainly a different setter from Red and Mike. After having lived the pampered life for so long, his longing to act like a real dog is palpable. It's almost like a tamer version of Jack London's "Call of the Wild." Sean has to learn by the seat of his pants how to survive in the wilderness, and adjusts over time to the rhythm of the woods. The parallel plot line with Billy Dash was interesting as well, although I felt like it was wrapped up a bit too fast at the end. Another well-written wilderness story! See my reviews on the other two books in the series for further details and thoughts.

    I enjoyed reading Outlaw Red from a pampered dog's perspective who gets lost in the wilderness and learns to tough it out. This book is exciting! I raced through it. If you enjoy adventure books as I do, such as Call of the Wild, Moby Dick, or Swiss Family Robinson I would recommend Outlaw Red for you. The book is appropriate for any age group as long as they have at least an upper elementary reading level. Left out of the book are racial stereotypes that were commonly found in books from this time period.

    Big Red by Jim Kjelgaard was better than any of his other books! This doesn't imply that all other of his books are a waste of time.

    I was reminded of Jack London's novel "Call of the wild." It was a good read, but I was distracted by the similarity, and parallels to London's book.

    Outlaw Red is a very good book to read if you have nothing to do or if you want to read a very good and interesting book. In this book Billy loses his dog named Sean in the woods in the middle of the Rocky Mountains. In the beginning of this book Billy and his dog Sean are out in the woods rabbit hunting when a huge thunder storm hit. Sean took off running and he didn't come back when Billy called.After a few days Billy thought that Sean was never coming back and he didn't come back for 10 days. In those 10 days Billy stayed alive in the middle of a thick forest. Sean ran into wild dogs and he had to fight them off but he did and then he got away from them. On about the fifth day Sean was still lost in the woods by himself and he was able to catch a rabbit with his jaws and he ate it. It the end of this book Sean smells Billy from a long ways away and then he runs to him through the brush and Billy is so glad to see him. I believe that Sean would not have lasted much longer in the woods by himself because he had little energy. Together Billy and Sean were able to find there way out of the woods and went home and had a huge meal and were all better. I believe any Freshman Boy should read this book because it teaches you how to survive in the wild and it teaches you how important your dog can be to you.

    A fine dog story from a fine dog story author! This is a continuation of the Big Red series. Told simply with a great passion for his characters, it is a nice read for those who love dogs or just a good dog story.

    Jim Kjelgaard's Irish Setter books are the ultimate boy-and-his-dog adventure stories. Although it has been a very long time since I read them, I do remember that they completely enthralled me at the time, and captured my heart and imagination.

    A clichéd story about a Irish Setter who is lost in the wilderness. Predictable, but I still love it. :)

    This is my least favorite of the "Red" books by Jim Kjelgaard. However, it is worth reading at least once if you are a fan.

    Who writes a book about a dog named Sean? But Sean is a good dog, a sad dog, and he fights a coyote and reunes with Billy Dash who didn't kill his Uncle Hat after all.
