About the Book

After winning a shooting competition, Crusoe, a Newfoundland dog, finds himself the best of all conceivable friends. Huge, like other members of his kind, and trained for two years to become an excellent hunter and swimmer. Crusoe was prepared for anything; his tail and ears would instantly rise.
Crusoe, Dick, and two other brave explorers are followed as they trek the western plains on a hazy peace mission among the local tribes. As well as some of the most hostile "Red-skins," there are grizzly bears, a stampede of wild horses, avalanches, and whirlwinds.
A little boy won Crusoe and a weapon in a shooting competition. The reader gets to experience the thrill of adventure as the kid and dog mature and rode out to see the wide prairie for the first time as well as the many creatures and wonderful landscape.

About Author

R. M. Ballantyne

Robert Michael Ballantyne was a Scottish writer of young adult literature who produced more than a hundred novels between 24 April 1825 and 8 February 1894. He was a talented artist as well; several of his watercolors were displayed at the Royal Scottish Academy. Ballantyne was conceived in Edinburgh, where he was born. He moved to Canada at the age of 16, where he worked for the Hudson's Bay Company for five years. During that time, his yearning for his family and his home inspired him to begin sending letters to his mother. Ballantyne discovered the death of his father upon his return to Scotland in 1847. The next year, Hudson's Bay: or, Life in the Wilds of North America, was released as his debut book. He gave up his business in 1856 to concentrate on his writing career. His writing policy was to be as close to his own firsthand experience of the situations he depicted. Ballantyne spent his final years in Harrow, London, before relocating to Italy for his health. He may have had Ménière's illness, which was not yet recognized. He passed away in Rome on February 8, 1894, and was laid to rest in the city's Protestant Cemetery.
