Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls Book Summary

A beloved classic that captures the powerful bond between man and man’s best friend.
Billy has long dreamt of owning not one, but two, dogs. So when he’s finally able to save up enough money for two pups to call his own—Old Dan and Little Ann—he’s ecstatic. It doesn’t matter that times are tough; together they’ll roam the hills of the Ozarks.

Soon Billy and his hounds become the finest hunting team in the valley. Stories of their great achievements spread throughout the region, and the combination of Old Dan’s brawn, Little Ann’s brains, and Billy’s sheer will seems unbeatable. But tragedy awaits these determined hunters—now friends—and Billy learns that hope can grow out of despair, and that the seeds of the future can come from the scars of the past.

horrible. incredibly boring and repetitive. characters are annoying. no character growth and overall questionable writing style

Very emotional, made me cry. Title says it all

Eh. I mean I only had to read it because of my teacher but it was a good book until Billy’s dogs died I mean what dog wants to die because it’s brother, sister or friend died that’s like me wanting to die because my grandpa died 🙄ugh

Made me cry. This book is the best and the saddest book I have ever read. Evan though I am only 10 years old. I felt like I was in the book it is so sweet and so sad in a way that you love it. It is a must read!!!

Okay,. This book told of hard work, sacrifice, and love. It was just too sad at the end to be tolerable.

4. It’s okay

Amazing. My dad said that this is about the only book he aver read. So obviously I read it, it is soo good and sad at the same time. Totally recommend for people of all ages!

Good book. This was such a great book the description was really good and I felt I was in the book. I did not like the ending though because Old Dan and little Ann died. I wish that the ending was much happier I even cried a little. Overall this book was quite amazing.

Love it. Absolutely love this book!

SO GOOD. I’m currently in seventh grade and i’m a big procrastinator. I have an essay due tomorrow on this book and hadn’t started it until today, i read the whole thing and it was amazing, i love the characters and highs and lows of this book. I highly recommend this book. For parents there are a couple of parts that get a little gory with an axe, not to spoil too much. Over all i absolutely love this book 10/10 100% recommend 💖🐶

Where The Red Ferns Grow. It’s a amazing book but it is so sad I cried for a day

Ok. It’s ok I guess...

Best book ever. I'm only 9 and This is my favorite book it was so so good

Where the red fern grows. This was is the best book I have ever read such a good book I should read it

Amazing fits the story. It is an amazing story and I would recommend this to everyone

Sad and awesome. This is the best book I’ve ever read

I loved it. I loved this adventures and exiting book.

I cried even though I am only 10. Thtyftujgyb jiugtvfrxdrfvg

Good book. This is one of the best books I have ever read.

A mans best friend. This book is the literal definition of a mans best friend.

Disappointing. Am I the only one to see nothing valuable in this book? What is romantic in cruelty of hunting for fun? A young boy chopping down the most beautiful tree in the wood only to catch and kill a terrified, defenseless animal with an axe is an example of love and compassion this book claims it is about? But at the same time, we are supposed to feel sorry for the death of Billy’s dogs in the end of the book? Why are their lives more valuable? No compassion meanwhile was shown for the cat that hurt all for of his legs in Billy’s trap. The author found it funny! Despite the claims of being a book about wonderful childhood, the reader will never know the names of Billy’s sisters. They are just girls, hence unimportant. The overall literary value of the book is questionable. There is no lesson, no point, no message, no character growth in it. A boring and repetitive narrative in the middle, followed by a hasty wrap-up in the end.

Where The Red Fern Grows. Best book ever! It's really sad, but super fun to read!

Best dog book I will ever read. What I loved about this book is the great relationship between a boy and his 2 dogs the ending is sad but the rest of the book is incredible.

Where the red fern grows. A good book to read to a class

Awesome book!. Where the Red Fern Grows is an amazing novel and is definitely one of the best I’ve read. It’s simply perfection!

Amazing. I recommend this! The book is very sweet and it can make someone cry but, it’s very sweet and happy. The book tells about the story of the boy and his dogs really well

Awesome Book!. I’m homeschooled and in seventh grade, but this book was so amazing i couldn’t stop reading it! So Good!

It’s a great book. This was an assignment for school at first I thought it wasn’t going to be interesting but after a few chapters i couldn’t stop reading, the end is sad I even cried a bit when the dogs died but it’s an amazing book, I recommend it!

Great book. It was a really nice book but very sad too.

Amazing book. This book is very emotional and has so much detail. Definitely a recommendation to all my family and friends.

Were the red firm grows. Best book ever

A life changing story. This was the most meaningful book I have ever read!

Amazing. I love this book; has to be my favorite book ever…the first time I read it was in 5th grade and I literally cried at the end. My friends and teacher asked what was wrong and all I did was hold up the book I was reading: “Where The Red Fern Grows.” Highly recommend it!

Amazing Book!!!. My sister gave me this book when she moved away so I read it and it had me crying for days 😭 it’s such an amazing book and I love it! I’m a middle school teacher and I read this to my students and some of them cried too, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone!

Horribly Sweet. I absolutely loved it. Good for ages 9-14. Has guns, murder, depression, sickness, runaways.

For Dog Lovers. This book made me laugh and cry in equal measure. A coming of age story about a boy and his two hound dogs.

Best book. This book was very interesting and hard to put down even though I don’t like reading. Some people are complaining about him hunting but that was how he had to earn money to survive so... yeah. GOOD BOOK :D

So Great!. This Book is amazing! I’ve never read an actual chapter book with Christianity in it! This indeed is the perfect book for a Christian.

Where the Red Fern Grows. I loved the book. It was amazing and you should read it.

Where the Red Fern Grows. This book is probably one of my favorite books even though it made me cry. I read this in 4th grade. I really recommend this book for young and old readers. I hope you read this book and love it!

Love this book. This book is so GREAT! I loved it so much! It has its ups and its downs and its a little sad But still a great book! You should read it!

My favorite read!. As a owner of hounds, this book absolutely moved my soul. I smiled, laughed and cried.

A work of literature. I’m eleven, and I read this book during elementary school, and BEFORE YOU READ THIS READ ALL THE REVIEWS THAT ARE BAD. then tell me why their excuses for this book being “boring” are so ridiculously bad. Why? Because they can’t comprehend literature as it is; art, literature is art. This book is art. I believe that people who love books, dogs, and sometimes coffee ☕️ 😂, like me should read this. Some reviews said it was sad at some parts I had to agree I cried a little, but that’s for my love of dogs. And these dogs aren’t just any dogs they protect Billy (their owner) and his family. They are one outstanding, amazing, brave, pair of dogs. Who not only help billy hunt, but become one of the best. Please read this book, it is amazing.

Wonderful story. I read this in middle school once as part of an assignment, our class was supposed to be reading it chapter by chapter as homework and writing assignments on it everyday. When i started reading this book i had my doubts, but before the first chapter was over i was completely in love and finished the book the first night, and read it 3 more times in a week. I can never find the words to describe the joy and sorrow this book brings me.

Anonymous. This book is only good if you have empathy for Billy. There’s a lot of hunting involved.

Life. I imagined my self, the pace she describes the whole time I could easily compare to where I live, I have two dogs of my own, they may not be hounds, but like Billy’s dogs, they were special. This book really touched me, I was even the same age, 14 and as I write this, I still am if that makes sense. This book has changed me and we change me forever

Where the Red Fern Grows. I’m 10 & in fifth grade and I’m reading this book in class and I’m on page 103 and I only started a week ago. I thought it was going to be boring but….. I was at page 33 and it really like hooked me and I stay up all night and read this book but it’s hard not to fall asleep. Ps. Sorry if I wrote to much.🙂 Have a nice day

Classic. My sixth grade son recommended this to me and once I started I couldn’t put it down!
