Irish Red by Jim Kjelgaard, T26, 9th Scholastic/TAB paperback printing, 1967, 160 pages. Cover illustration by Bruno Frost.
DESCRIPTION: “‘If I had my pick, I’d take this one.’
‘Because he’s all dog. He ain’t much for looks, but he’s got it inside. If any man gets sense enough to bring out what Mike’s got, he;ll have a dog to beat the field.’
Mike is the Irish Setter son of Big Red. This is the story of his escapes and of the boy who trained the unruly pup to be a winner.” (from the back cover)
