Where the Red Fern Grows, by Wilson Rawls
Where the Red Fern Grows is a really good book, so good that it's hard to stop reading. OK,
the book is about a boy that loves dogs but he doesn't have enough
money to get one. He does deeds for his grandpa and sells stuff to the
fishermen until he can buy two dogs. They are bloodhounds and he trains
them to hunt for possums. Something tragic happens at the end. Read
this book to find out.
