    One thought on “Good-Bye, My Lady”

    1. This is a very poignant story about a young orphaned boy growing up dirt poor in the Florida Everglades with his aged grandfather. The boy's only two desires are to be able to afford a set of dentures for his grandfather and to have a dog, but sadly, they are too poor to keep one. One night he hears a baby crying in the swamp, goes looking for it and ends up finding a small mutt of a dog with this strange form of vocalizations; when the dog is happy, she sounds like a baby laughing, when sad, sh [...]

    2. It's an absolutely amazing tale of a boy and his love for a dog he found wandering around. Lady, a rare Basenji,especially way back when the book was written, was found wandering around in the woods after being accidentally set free. The boy takes care of Lady until her owner comes back to claim her from him. It's a beautiful and heartbreaking story. Even the movie made from the book is wonderful. It's a shame that this book is no longer being published as it really is a wonderful story for kids [...]

    3. Basically feels like a reminder that poor people can’t have nice things (in this case a dog). If they do, it is only temporary.

    4. "The swamp was sleeping the night away, but the boy was wide awake as he sat on the steps of the cabin and listened to the moonlight rhythm of things -- the swish of the river around the cypress knees, the hum of insects, the low rumblings of the bullfrogs and the high cries of wildcats."So begins James Street's class young adult novel about a young man and his dog, and a very clear but difficult decision. I read this one years and years ago then was lucky enough to find a second hand copy, sinc [...]

    5. One of my very favorites. My mom read this to me when I was little. I just got done reading it to my 3rd and 5th grade boys. It is an old book that is about the love between a boy and his dog, and the love between the boy and his uncle that raises him. Takes place in the swamps of the mississippi bayous.

    6. For years I read this book every year during Christmas vacation. Every year I cried at the end. I saw the movie and loved it as well but nothing is as good as the book. If you like dog stories this ranks with the very best. Highly recommend it.

    7. Good story.Lots of details about living in a southern swamp, illiterate and poor. Very nice round about coming of age story. It is written as though the real story is a side story and just happens while the plot plays out. Emotional without being maudlin.

    8. This is a sad book where a boy finds a dog and trains it. then the dog has to go back to its old owner. The boy takes it very well. I think that it is a must read if you like realistic fiction and animals.

    9. I read this when I was in 6th or 7th grade somewhere around 1977 I think. I remember it being pretty good, but can't remember all the details.

    10. A classic boy-and-his-dog story with a well drawn setting in a swampy part of the south. Since the dog in this tale is also my favorite breed, this is by far the best boy-and-his-dog novel ever.
