Early Reads

Last week, Dash had a post up about Fred Gipson. Dash wrote about Gipson and his story of "Old Yeller." Got me thinking about some of the books that I read as a kid, and how some of them have shaped what I am today. I thought about making up my own meme, but there's too much of that going around lately! I remember reading "Old Yeller," and the follow up story, "Savage Sam." Great, life-like stories.

Others that we read (and still make allusions to) were Sterling North's "Rascal," and "The Wolfling," Ralph Moody's "Little Britches," and "The Little House Series," by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Yeah, yeah, I know... Little House books were considered girls' books, but they were damn good stories. I proudly proclaim that I will have the whole damn series one day.

Who were some of the authors you enjoyed as a youngster, and what were some of your favorite stories?
