I WAS as proud of it as Papa would've been if someone had given him a dozen Missouri mules

I WAS as proud of it as Papa would've been if someone had given him a dozen Missouri mules. I was out after the ringtails every night. About the only time I didn't go hunting was when the weather was bad, and even then Mama all but had to hog-tie me. What wonderful nights they were, running like a deer through the thick timber of the bottoms, tearing my way through stands of wild cane, climbing over drifts, and.

Where the Red Fern Grows wasn’t an overnight success when Doubleday released it in 1961. Following the success of his books, Rawls received invitations to speak at schools across America, where he told the story of his life and offered writing advice to students. Even several years after its publication, Rawls was still working as a carpenter, and by the mid-'60s the novel was scheduled to go out of print. Then Rawls got an invitation to speak at the Intermountain Conference on Children’s Literature in Salt Lake City. Visiting over 2000 schools before he passed away in 1984, Rawls always brought a powerful visual aid

Where the Red Fern Grows is a beloved classic that captures the powerful bond between man and man’s best friend. This edition also includes a special note to readers from Newbery Medal winner and Printz Honor winner Clare Vanderpool.    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. Praise for Where the Red Fern Grows A Top 100 Children’s Novel, School Library JournalA Must-Read for Kids 9 to 14, NPRA Great American Read's Selection (PBS)Winner of Multiple State AwardsOver 14 million copies in print!

Wilson Rawls’ classic, timeless story of a young boy’s coming-of-age is heartbreaking, sentimental, and utterly charming. An ode to love, family and the beauty of nature. Set in the Ozarks, northeastern Oklahoma, Billy wants nothing more than to have a puppy, or to be more specific, two puppies. He wants to train them for hunting, although his mother has forbidden him to use or own a gun until he is 21 or older. For two years he waits, collecting enough money doing whatever jobs he can, he finally raises enough for two puppies who are delivered via train to the town closest to where he lives.

"I knelt down and gathered them into my arms. I buried my face between their wiggling bodies and cried. The stationmaster, sensing something more than two dogs and a boy, waited in silence."

My Dad didn’t grow up in the Ozarks, but he trapped animals as a young boy to raise money for a dog. Selling skins to Sears Roebuck & Co. was enough then to fulfill that dream and then later to get him enough money to fly enough hours to be conscripted (after being declared 4F) to train pilots at Americus, Georgia. When he was able to return to being a civilian pilot, the first thing he did with the money he saved was to buy another dog. On multiple levels, I felt this story to be so close to my father’s, both coming from rural, impoverished areas.

“Men, said Mr. Kyle, “people have been trying to understand dogs ever since the beginning of time. One never knows what they’ll do. You can read every day where a dog saved the life of a drowning child, or lay down his life for his master. Some people call this loyalty. I don’t. I may be wrong, but I call it love – the deepest kind of love.”

This is such a wonderful story; I highly recommend you read it. Re-read it, if you read it as a child.

This story was riveting! We did a road trip with our grandchildren, so we purchased the audio version and listened as we drove. The story kept the constant attention of both children and us as adults. The author has a great ability to paint a picture with his words and the reader for the audio version brought those words to life! There were some pretty graphic portions as fights between animals took place but our grandchildren were not put off by it...they wanted to keep listening. The story opened opportunities for some great conversations. We would love to see the movie made from this book, but honestly, I don't know how the movie could stack up against the book. So many details of the author's descriptions could be lost.

Somehow I never read this book as a child. I wish I had, so I could compare how it affected me then versus now as a grandma. The story is active and intense, with fantastically detailed descriptions of Billy's adventures with his dogs. I think only an author who grew up in the mountains and experienced nighttime hunting and an untethered freedom to roam, as Billy - and Wilson Rawls - did, could have written this book. In some senses, the story is dated, both because it was published in 1961 and because the setting is an isolated farm in the Ozarks around 1920. For example, "womenfolk" are regarded as opaque and overly emotional (Billy's three sisters aren't even named in the book, though they play a role). Animals are often considered dispensable, and the repeated descriptions of coon hunting and coon killing are gory (and the family cat's injuries are ridiculed). Personal grief is something to ignore or to rebound from quickly. However, the book seems true to its time and place, and in any historical fiction the world will be different from our own. Anyone who's loved a dog will relate to Billy's deep bond with his hounds. I enjoyed the adventure, and I savored Billy's astonishing descriptions of his life with Old Dan and Little Ann.

I bought this book to try and bring back an old time classic family tradition. I have 4 sons that are 13, 11, 6 and 2 years old. I wanted to recreate a lost tradition from the past by reading a story to my children on Sunday nights. With all the ipods, ipads, xboxes and PS3's and other "stuff" I felt like families easily drift apart. So I called everyone to the living room just last night and told them to put their "toys" away and be quiet. I began reading this old story that I love so much. At first I was greeted with yawns and poking one another but after about 10 minutes or so the boys were quiet. Next thing I knew I had read for an hour and was calling it quits after chapter 4. The kids began PLEADING with me to read one more chapter. I caved and read one more chapter. They pleaded at the end of that chapter to read one more chapter again but this time I wanted to leave them hanging and simply said, "next Sunday." This story is such a great story about a boy and his dream of owning hound dogs and becoming a hunter. IT's a wonderful reminder of how little in life we really need and how much love we can have for the very little and small things in life. It expresses what hard work and determination will get you if you dream big and then work hard for it and maybe ask for a little help from God. I am so happy I bought this book. It is a priceless addition to our bookshelf at home.
