Where the Red Fern Grows
by Wilson Rawls Year Published: Average
This story of a 10 year old boy and his pair of hunting dogs should appeal to the animal loving audience as well as those with a natural bent for the great outdoors. Billy employs superhuman efforts to live up to his dogs and they in turn reward him with their uncanny abilities. The rapport between the boy and his companions and the simplicity of the Oklahoma Ozark life make this a good choice.
