A loving threesome, they ranged the dark hills and river bottoms of Cherokee country.

And close by was the strange and wonderful power that's only found... Recommended for ages 10 and up.

Publisher's Description

For fans of Old Yeller and Shiloh, Where the Red Fern Grows is a beloved classic that captures the powerful bond between man and man’s best friend.
 
   Billy has long dreamt of owning not one, but two, dogs. So when he’s finally able to save up enough money for two pups to call his own—Old Dan and Little Ann—he’s ecstatic. It doesn’t matter that times are tough; together they’ll roam the hills of the Ozarks.
   Soon Billy and his hounds become the finest hunting team in the valley. Stories of their great achievements spread throughout the region, and the combination of Old Dan’s brawn, Little Ann’s brains, and Billy’s sheer will seems unbeatable. But tragedy awaits these determined hunters—now friends—and Billy learns that hope can grow out of despair, and that the seeds of the future can come from the scars of the past.

Author Bio

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.

    This is a very good book to read to all students. My favorite part of the book was when Billy won the hunting contest. This is a very good book to read to students. Also, I think you should rate this the book of the year.

    This book has a lot of foreshadowing in it, that is what can make a book very interesting. I would also suggest that you have plenty of tissues in hand as you read towards the end of the book. It is a heartwarming story that tells about a boy named Billy, who who has an affectionate side to him about dogs. Billy doesn't like just any kind of dog, he wanted two bloodhounds, because he could use the bloodhounds for hunting. He named his bloodhounds Old Dan and Little Ann, the bloodhounds were a perfect match for each other, because they were like buddies and would always stick by Billy's side. Billy was practically a father to the skilled dogs, because Billy had an unending love for his dogs that they were inseparable to him, just like God has an unending love to whoever follows him. I highly recommend this book, because it is an inspiration to everyone that loves dogs and wants them to be like a sibling to them.

    Are you looking for a great book that will keep your interest? "Where the Red Fern Grows" is perfect. A cute story about two little hounds who work together to sniff out coon hounds. Little Ann and Old Dan would do anything for each other even if it's a life or death situation. I HIGHLY recommend this book. But beware crying will be included!
