Where The Red Fern Grows

Author: Wilson Rawls
Reviewer's Age: 12

Where The Red Fern Grows is about Billy, a boy who lives in Oklahoma in the Ozark mountains. He is "dog-sick" and is dreaming of having two coon hunting hounds. He works for two years trying to afford the fifty dollars that the two coon dogs are worth. It is a special day when he gets his dogs and immediately starts training them. The dogs bring great luck into Billy's life and are his best companions, until one fateful accident occurs, one that will change Billy's life forever. This book is one of my favorite books because it shows how if you really want something, you can't and won't give up until you have it. It shows how determination and hope can bring you a long ways.
