Wilson Rawls's Where The Red Fern Grows is the story of a boy, Billy, and his dogs, Old Dan and Little Ann. Billy saves up his money for two years to buy his dogs, and when he gets them, he trains them to be hunting hounds. He enters a hunting competition were he wins a golden trophy as first place. He hunted coons and bobcats. When his dogs die after a fight with a mountain lion, a red fern grows between there graves. It's a sad book, but it's also a sweet one. I enjoyed this book a lot.
