I pick up this book from a public library and the librarians told me that the book was interesting and awesome and I read 2 chapter and I thought it was a boring book but then I realize that it was really cool and I did finish.
This is a story of a boy called billy and he doesn't go to school and he was inspired to go hunt by his father and other family and about a boy who buys and trains two Red-bone Coonhound hunting dogs. the

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.

Ending was good; the rest of the book was basically about these two coon dogs killing raccoons and their country bumpkin owner. Oh and btw I hate hunting so that definitely helped me like the book (that was sarcasm)
3/5 stars; just not for me
Read for school

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.

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.

The dog genre is a little too boyish for me, but this was probably my favorite.

But the Great Depression hit the United States in 1929, and Rawls left home to find work. His family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1935, and he came home each fal
