Where the Red Fern Grows

by Wilson Rawls

After working and saving for two years, Billy's dream of owning two coonhounds comes true. Through his experiences with the dogs, Billy learns about life, death, and prayer.

Barbara's Notes: This is so much more than a book about a boy and his dogs. While it contains plenty of adventure with a family focus, it's spiritual principles are obvious and real. (Grades 5, 6, 7)
