When 11-year-old Marty Preston chances upon a mistreated beagle pup in his hometown of Friendly, West Virginia, he is not prepared for the ethical questions he has to face. Should he return the dog to its owner, only to have the animal abused again? Should he tell his parents? Should he steal food to help the poor creature? Marty''s efforts to cope with these questions provides the moral backbone for this story, which is presented in a language and manner that will be understood by third- and fourth-grade readers. The heart and beauty of this 1992 Newbery Medal winner lies in lessons children will take away with them.


The New York Times Book Review, Jane Langton
Written in a comfortable, down-home style and set in a believable dirt-poor Bible Belt countryside.


From Kirkus Reviews
A gripping account of a mountain boy''s love for a dog he''s hiding from its owner. Marty, 11, tells how Shiloh, the runaway, first caught his heart; still, his bone-poor West Virginia family has a strong sense of honor, and the dog is returned to its owner. After it runs back to Marty, he hides it in the woods. As Marty''s structure of lies to his parents compounds, the villainous owner circles closer. By the time Judd finds Shiloh, the whole family is compromised and the dog has been injured. Marty does get the dog, partly by another lie of omission: he blackmails Judd when he finds him poaching and makes a deal to work for Judd to pay for the dog, but tells his parents another version. Fine lines are explored here: How necessary is it to adhere to the strict truth? ``What kind of law is it...that lets a man mistreat his dog?'''' Has the dog been ``saved'''' if this leads to its injury? Marty concludes that ``nothing is as simple as you guess--not right or wrong, not Judd Travers, not even me or this dog.'''' Meanwhile, young readers will rejoice that Shiloh and Marty end up together.


Ingram
The 1992 Newbery Medal was awarded to Shiloh, as well as 25 state children''s choice awards. "A moving and powerful look at the best and the worst of human nature as well as the shades of gray that color most of life''s dilemmas."--Booklist starred review.
