I read this book as a child and loved it. So sorry it is out of print, but it is well worth paying a bit extra to obtain a copy so that your 11 to 13 year olds can enjoy a great dog story...great writing...great Mississippi setting

A boy and a dog
Good-Bye My Lady is a touching coming of age story set in the swamp land of Alabama. The story explores the big questions of love, generosity, honor, loyalty and courage in a deceptively simple story of a boy and a dog. The story is compelling and the choices facing Skeeter, the main character, are serious.
I've read this story 3 or 4 times and it affects me every time with its strong characters and its exploration of making the choice to do the right thing even when you know it will break your heart.
If you like dogs, this deeply affecting story is a must-read. Written in 1941, it still resonates to those who remember what it was like to be a young person facing an adult decision.
