Jim Kjelgaard really started my obsessive compulsive reading lifestyle. He was really the first author that I can vividly remember, at like 8 years old, going into a bookstore and blurting out to any employee "Do you have any Jim Kjelgaard books, I'll spell it for yo.K-J-E-L-G-A-A-R-D" Great dog books too, by the way. Jack London lite.

This book is a great blend of realistic outdoor adventure and the special bond between a boy and his dog. Big Red is a believable adventure tale.

I am an 11 year old boy and recently read Big Red. Big Red is a book about a boy named Danny and his dog. Danny is 17 years old and lives on his neighbor, Mr. Haggin’s, property with his father. Danny really likes Mr. Haggin’s dog, so Mr. Haggin allows Danny to take care of the dog. Danny calls the dog “Red” and he is an Irish Setter. Because Red is a fancy show dog, Danny gets paid $50 a month to take care of him. Danny loves Red because he is very smart, loving, and beautiful. Danny trains the dog to hunt and Red is a very good hunter. Red and Danny have many adventures together. In one adventure they trap and escaped prisoner in the woods. This was one of my favorite parts of the books. It was really exciting! Also Red fights a bear in the forest. No one wins, but the bear is afraid of Red. No other dogs would go near the bear. Red is very brave. At the end of the book Danny kills the bear with Red’s help. The bear bit Red’s leg, but he recovers. I liked all the adventures of this story. I wish there were one main plot. Instead there were many different adventures. I would recommend this book to people who like adventures and dogs.

I first read this book in 1974 when I was in 4th grade. It changed my life and has stuck with me since. I probably read it twice that year and not since, until I bought it here on Amazon last month. I recommend it for everyone, although it is definitely written for a tweenage audience. It still holds up, though. If you think you like dogs, or know you love dogs, it is a must read. As described as a timeless classic, which of course was made into a classic film from that era, it is beautiful, and still made this 50 year-old tough guy cry in the end - even though I already knew what was coming.

I bought this book for my grandson. My husband loved it as a boy and wanted his grandson to read it. We now have a quiet reading time at my house, my husband is rereading his favorite childhood books along with his grandson.
My husband told me the books in this series is great for any kid that loves dogs and or hunting. If the kids love the things they are reading about they will read the books and want to read more of them. This is what is happening with out grandson. Before I had to threaten him to read books for his AR points for school, he knows now there are books about subjects he likes.

I read this book decades ago when I was in school and loved it and the entire Big Red series , so far my son has enjoyed reading a chapter or two before bed each night.

Jim Kjelgaard is a really great writer of dog stories set in the outdoors. "Big Red" is the first of three Irish Setter books. If you like "Big Red" the second book is "Irish Red" and the third one is "Outlaw Red". Danny lives with his father in a shack back in the mountains. They run a trap line and harvest wild honey for money. They are squatters on the land of a rich man, Mr. Haggin. Danny's mother died a long time ago. Danny and his father make a little money on the side by doing work for Mr. Haggin. Mr. Haggin has a beautiful Irish Setter he calls Boy. When Danny sees him, it's love at first sight. But when Danny asks Mr. Haggin how much a dog like Boy would cost, Mr. Haggin says he paid $7000 for him. Danny knows a trapper could never afford a dog like that. Mr. Haggin takes an interest in Danny. It is clear that Danny is different from his father, he has some kind of quality he inherited from his mother, tempered by the ruggedness and independence he learned from living in the wilderness. Mr. Haggin gives Danny a job taking care of Boy, who Danny calls Red. Like Danny, Red shows special quality. But he has never done for himself. He's a show dog. Mr. Haggin sends Danny to New York with Red when he's in a dog show. Then when they go back to Mr. Haggin's ranch, Danny is allowed to take Red out in the wilderness. Red learns from Danny how to be a brave and rugged dog. Red and Mr. Haggin give Danny a chance to move into the civilized world, and Danny gives Red a chance to reach his potential as a real dog in the outdoor world. An earlier reviewer made a great point that applies to all of Mr. Kjelgaard's books I have read: the dog doesn't have to be killed in his books. Most great dog stories are very sad. Examples would be "Sounder", "Where the Red Fern Grows", and "Old Yeller". I don't really like to watch most dog movies, because the dog always dies. The worst that happens to the dogs in Mr. Kjelgaard's books is a broken leg, or a bad wound that heals. No kleenex needed, no broken hearts here.

I bought this for a friend whose Mom had read it to him as a child. He said it was as meaningful today as it was then.

This was a book I loved growing up. I didn't like, I adored it, reading it at least three times. When my godson was finally old enough to read (and I thought love it too) I presented it as a present. He was less than impressed. When we talked about it, he explained it just didn't have enough action. It was 'too much talking about everything without a lot happening. Not bad, but not great.

I was a bit heart broken but realized there are all sorts of different readers and kids out there. They don't have to be the same. Another reviewer who quite love Big Red said it perfectly: it is for the sort of kids who are patient readers. Those who are willing to let things develop slowly. As a city boy reading it for the first time, Big Red introduced me to a different world. It is still teaching me lessons: kids are what they are, not what we want them to be.
Finally! After all these years! I have had the opportunity to read Irish Red! Mr Kjelgaard's ability to humanize the feelings of the canine characters continues to make the story very vivid and the reader feel part of the story. All of these books would be great, even decades later, for young readers as well as those of us who are older.
