I read Shiloh primarily because it was the only book on the list that was checked in at the public library near my house. I didn't have much of a reaction to it. In fact, even though I'd never read it before, it felt like a rerun. I don't want to be too harsh because it is basically a good, solid story with strong characters and a lovable animal, but it didn't thrill me.

To me, the only remarkable thing about the book is how moral the Preston family is. We talked about ethics a lot in 550 last quarter and I can tell you that none of us used as fine a comb as Naylor's West Virginians (excepting Judd, of course). Marty feels terrible about every little lie he tells, every little trick he pulls to save Shiloh, every tiny offense. I haven't seen such rigorous values in a work of fiction in a long time.

Kathie Cerra (The Five Owls, January/February 1992 (Vol. 6, No. 3))
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.
