Item description for Where the Red Fern Grows: The Story of Two Dogs and a Boy by Wilson Rawls...

Young Billy having purchased two dogs for fifty dollars is determined to create the valley's best hunting team

Publishers Description
Billy, Old Dan and Little Ann -- a Boy and His Two Dogs...

A loving threesome, they ranged the dark hills and river bottoms of Cherokee country. Old Dan had the brawn, Little Ann had the brains -- and Billy had the will to train them to be the finest hunting team in the valley. Glory and victory were coming to them, but sadness waited too. And close by was the strange and wonderful power that's only found...

An exciting tale of love and adventure you'll never forget.
Wilson Rawls grew up on a small farm in the Ozark Mountains of Oklahoma. There were no schools where he lived so his mother taught Rawls and his sisters how to read and write. He says that reading the book The Call of the Wild changed his life and gave him the notion that he would like to grow up to write a book like it. He shared his dream with his father, and his father gave him the encouraging advice, "Son, a man can do anything he sets out to do, if he doesn't give up." Rawls never forgot his father's words, and went on to create two novels about his boyhood that have become modern classics.

Though he didn't have access to real books until he was of high-school age, Rawls's modest beginnings provided the foundation upon which greater success was built.

Reviews - What do customers think about Where the Red Fern Grows?

Most heartbreaking ending ever.  Aug 16, 2007
This book was great until the end. I read it as a kid in the 5th grade and enjoyed the story and the journey of the kid earning money for the dogs and his bond with them.

But, the ending is horrible. You will cry, you will be angry, and you will feel betrayed by this book forever. My husband and I still can't beleive how depressing the end is.

If you must read this stop before the last couple of chapters. Then imagine the dogs living a happy long life by the fireplace.
Where the Red Fern Grows  Aug 6, 2007
This book is great for anyone who has ever lost a dear pet. This novel explores the adventures of a boy and his dogs; dogs which he remembers well into adulthood. The story is a real tear-jerker.
Where The Red Fern Grows  Jul 9, 2007
Everyone who has ever had a faithful dog should read Billy's story at least once in his or her lifetime. It's an ageless tale that touches the heart and mind.

Ten-year old Billy lived in the Ozark Mountains with his parents and three younger sisters. The family was extremely poor, as were most of their neighbors at that time, and could only afford the bare necessities of life. Billy's dream of having a pair of coonhounds of his own seemed to be only that until he found a resourceful way to earn the money for himself.

For two long years, Billy trapped and sold animal pelts until he had finally saved enough money to finance his lifelong dream. With his grandfather's help, he ordered two pups and then walked several miles to bring them home. That's when the real adventures began.

If the story is beginning to sound familiar, it should. "Where the Red Fern Grows" by Wilson Rawls is an unforgettable classic that has been enjoyed for generations.

So where does the red fern come into the story? You'll just have to read it for yourself, and don't be surprised if you hear the distant bawling of a couple of dogs who have tree'd a `coon each time you open the book.

It's just Little Ann and Old Dan, for they've never really left these Ozark hills.
Bought it for my son after reading it myself in my younger days.  Jun 8, 2007
Maybe only country boys can appreciate it, but I thought it was a simple, yet great story, timeless.
Where the red fern grows  Jun 5, 2007
Have you ever buried something that meant a lot to you, and than something nice covered it up as a sign? One day Billy bought his dream dogs that he always wanted and entered a competition, Billy and his dogs won every competition until something tragic happened when they were hunting. Once every one got returned home another accident happened and that's where the red fern grows.
Some one's favorite part would most likely be the part with the most excitement and sadness in it. When Billy was hunting Billy's dogs saved his life against a mountain lion, but in the end his dog Eddy died. A couple of weeks later after Eddy's death Billy's other dog, Daisy died also next to where Eddy was buried.
The main theme of this book was about friend ship, and sometimes how you need companionship, sometimes you will need friends or help to get through situations.
In conclusion I liked every thing about this book; I wouldn't change anything in this book because I thought it was really good. I think anyone should read this book because it's a terrific book and anyone who likes realistic books that have excitement and sadness should read this book
