Eleven-year-old Marty would love to have a dog, but knows that his family - who aren't poor, exactly, but don't have much extra - can't really afford to feed one. But when a hunting beagle runs away from its mean master, Marty decides to sneak a bit and keep the dog, whom he names Shiloh, anyway.

This is definitely the kind of book that works better for a child reader who isn't as familiar with tropes as an adult will be. So while I found the storyline pretty predictable (and, as I'm now older than them, I generally sided with the parents), it was a nice, nostalgic sort of story told by an eleven-year-old boy who is still idealistic and can't understand a world where a mean owner could be allowed to keep a dog. The mean guy, Judd Travers, isn't a cookie-cutter evil guy, either, as Marty discovers as he learns more about him. ( )

Marty lives with his family in a very rural area of West Virginia. His family and community value simplicity, honor and frugality. It all comes to bear when Marty discovers a neighbors hunting dog has been mistreated and run away. I really enjoyed Marty's struggles with doing the right thing and working with difficult people in this story. ( )

Among the many fine qualities of this novel for the middle grades is the multilevel conflict that drives the plot. Marty Preston, eleven years old, lives a good but frugal life with his family in the hills of West Virginia. He has always wanted a dog, but the family could never afford to feed one. The seeds of the outer conflict emerge early in the story, when Marty comes upon a beagle in the woods. The dog is owned and mistreated by a cruel neighbor, Judd, who keeps beagles for hunting. Although Marty's father makes Marty return the dog to Judd, the beagle seeks out Marty a second time. Marty decides secretly to keep the dog, naming him Shiloh. The outer conflict hinges around Marty's efforts to keep Shiloh hidden, fed, and cared for without the knowledge of his family or of Judd. The inner conflict, which heightens suspense, centers around the several aspects of Marty's moral dilemma. Marty feels guilty about lying to his kind and loving parents, yet he knows that his father would make him return Shiloh to the rightful owner. He ponders whether keeping a dog that belongs to someone else is justified when the owner mistreats the dog. As the story unfolds, aspects of the outer conflict change. But it is Marty's love for Shiloh that continues to inform his actions. If, as John Gardner tells us in The Art of Fiction, vivid detail is the life blood of fiction, then Shiloh teems with life. It is the detail in Marty's first-person narrative that allows the reader to share his experience and feeling. Marty tells us what it feels like to first hold the squirming Shiloh, and he tells us how it feels to lie to his loving parents. We know Marty's perceptions through vivid sensory detail, and we participate in his inner life of thought and feeling. The style of this book convincingly reflects regional speech and is spare and inviting. Marty's hard work and courage and honesty bring about the resolution of the inner and outer conflicts that he faces.
