With help from his grandpa, Bill buys the dogs and goes to Tahlehquah to pick the dogs up. He trains the dogs to help him find coon. He makes money off of the coon skins, and gives the money to his father. Billy has many adventures with his dogs.
I think this book was okay. Personally, I do not read books about animals because I find them not interesting. The book did have many values and lessons. It was a good read, but I would not read this book again. I would recommend this to people who love animals.
The cover has a boy and two dogs on it. I think the cover has a lot to do with what the book is about. I give Where the Red Fern Grows a rating of 3/5.
