This book is a touching story about a boy with to dogs and the adventure of a racoon hunter. This story has happy and sad moments that will make you cry. I read this book in the 7th grade Engligh class. It is a great story for young kids, and also parents with kids. It shows the bond between kids and there pets.
A truly heart warming but sorrowful tale of a boy and his dogs. I had to get this book when I saw Where the Red Fern Grows, I always loved this story and hope to pass it on, since I first read it in fourth grade.
This was one of my favorite books as a boy. I was also a big fan of Summer of the Monkeys, but this one broke my heart each time I read it. And of course I never had a dog, but someday I'd like to have a hound dog. And also maybe a son. I'm less sure about living in the Ozarks, but I haven't ruled it out yet.

Read this with my 12 year old son for our Parent Child Book Club. It was one of his favourite books from school last year. It is a lovely story about a boys and his dogs, a bit of a surprise choice for my son
since he usually goes for the fantasy and gore books.
This book is a heart warming story that is about a boy with to dogs and the adventure of a racoon hunter. This story has happy and sad moments that will make you cry which I'm prety sure you will. It isa great story.
i was around 10 when i read this for school, and was sobbing so hard at the end that in order to finish it my mother had to read the last pages to me aloud, then she started sobbing. clearly we're wusses.
the relationship between the dog and the boy reminds me of me and my dog but i think i would die if my dog died on me! -tear- =(

I didn't read all of the related readings, but a lot of them I did not want to read.
The dog genre is a little too boyish for me, but this was probably my favorite.
I've read this book more than any other and I cry every time. Seriously.
i didn't finish it yet i'm in chapter
so sad :(((((
