Where the Red Fern Grows
By Wilson Rawls
Where the Red Fern Grows is a heartwarming and inspiring story. When Billy Colman saves up his earnings, he finally has enough to get his dream, a pair of coon hounds (hunting dogs advertised in a magazine). He doesn’t wait to get them. He sets out over the Ozarks in the dead of the night, with nothing but determination in his heart.
This classic Wilson Rawls story has touched many hearts. There is a legend (among the Indians) about the sacred Red Fern. I don’t want to tell you any more than I’ve already revealed. My Dad & I read this in our Daddy-Daughter Book Club together and we loved it. This story will be passed down from generation to generation because this story brings the true meaning of courage into everyone’s hearts.
