Read this when I was a kid, then listened to the audio tape. Loved every minute of it. The book is a masterpiece and should be added to any child's collection. I recommend the audio CD/tape as the story is captured perfectly there, as well. A++ rating on this one! Just bought for my kid.

I read this book when I was 11, and have loved it for 30 years.I bought it for my 9 year old to read with me at night befor bed.Today we were on the last chapter..with her reading it out loud as I drove her to school..with both of us bawling like babies..I asked her if she wanted to stop, fearing the story was too emotional for her,"...are you crazy!!???.." was all she said through the tears.."..this is now my favorite book!!.. I remembered I too felt the same way 30 years ago. Now Im on here buying it in hardback for her to someday read to my future grandchild, who will love it as much as we did.
Attention All Dog Lovers
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 18 years ago
Where the Red Fern Grows, by Wilson Rawls is a story about a boy living in the Ozark Mountains and his desire to have two hound dogs. This longing was complicated by the fact that his family were too poor to buy the dogs. The story that follows is one of adventure and excitement.I loved this book because of the friendship between the boy and his dogs. When I was reading it I felt like I was the Billy, the main character. I read it in 3 days and then felt sad that it was all over. All dog lovers should read this book. Wilson Rawls taught me through this book not to give up when circumstances look impossible.
