Synopses & Reviews
After Marty Preston worked so hard to earn the dog Shiloh, he had hoped that his troubles with Judd Travers were over. He could not rescue all the dogs that Judd mistreated, but since shiloh was the one who ran away and came to him, Shiloh was the one he loved.
Judd, however, has other problems. Anyone who cheats and swears and lies and kicks his dogs has troubles inside himself, and when the man starts drinking, Marty realizes that Shiloh is in danger once again. As hunting season approaches and Judd begins hunting on their land, the Prestos know that something is bound to happen.
They're right. Marty does the only thing he can think of to do, and discovers just how deep a hurt can go and how long it takes to heal.

Shiloh belongs to Marty now, but the boy still can't trust his dog's original owner. Judd is back to drinking hard and being reckless with his rifle. Marty fears that Judd might have a new hunting target this season: Shiloh. "Marty's voice is consistently strong and true.... Shiloh fans will be well served by the sequel". -- Horn Book
The second book in the trilogy introduced by "Shiloh", the Newbery Medal-winning classic. Even though Shiloh now belongs to Marty, his worries are far from over. Judd, the dog's original owner, is back to drinking hard and being reckless with his rifle.
