SAVAGE SAM by Fred Gipson


Email this review


Young people who loved Old Yeller and Hound Dog Man will have to expect to find a different emphasis in this. While Savage Sam is Old Yeller's son, he plays a secondary if important role in what is essentially an adventure story -- a story of Indian capture and escape and a gory one at that. Teen-age Travis, Little Arlie and Lizbeth are captured by Apaches, who force their captives to witness bloody slaughters. Then Travis escapes- joins up with the pursuing ranchmen of the Texas hill country, and with the aid of the tenacious Savage Sam, who picks up the trail, the victims are rescued, unharmed.
