Publisher's Summary

From Phyllis Reynolds Naylor comes this unabridged recording of her Newbery Award-winning tale of adventure, courage and love, the timeless and moving story of a dog in trouble and the young boy who would save him.Eleven-year-old Marty Preston loves to spend time up in the hills behind his home near Friendly, West Virginia. Sometimes he takes his .22 rifle to shoot cans from the rail fence. Other times he goes up early in the morning just to sit and watch the fox and deer.
But one summer Sunday, Marty comes across something different on the road just past the old Shiloh schoolhouse, a young beagle, and that's where the trouble begins.
What do you do when a dog you suspect is being mistreated runs away and comes to you? When the man who owns the dog has a gun? This is Marty's problem, and it is one he will have to face alone. Soon Marty will have to put his courage on the line, discovering in the process that it is not always easy to separate right from wrong. Sometimes, however, a boy will do almost anything to save a dog.

Epic! ( An eleven yr olds review)

Where does Shiloh rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is one of the best books that I have listened to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Shiloh?

I loved how Marty stood up for the love of Shiloh.

What does Peter MacNicol bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The reader was really good. He made me believe that he was telling the story about himself. He really suited the character. He made the story to life.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Best Dog Story Ever!!!!

My 8 year old daughter says....

It was sad and really, really enjoyable, especially the part at the end (we don't want to reveal the ending). I am looking forward to getting all the books.
