Trailer ¾ Where the Red Fern Grows PDF by î Wilson Rawls A young boy dreams of having pets of his own wait, scratch that to mean dogs of his own because technically they already have a pet cat Sammy I m thinking Sammy doesn t matter much to the family since the dad laughs at the cat limping with injured paws when he accidentally keeps getting his paws injured from Billy s trap At least he gets bandaged, but Sammie soon abandons the family when he develops a fear of people go figure.
The first part of the book is Billy saving up money and working hard to get dogs not for companionship at first, but hunting partners and eventually he succeeds in getting both of his goals met dogs and training them to be strong hunters Seriously the book has so little plot that I was bored most of the time It s an endless cycle of Billy and his dogs hunting down poor raccoons an Wilson Rawls classic, timeless story of a young boy s coming of age is heartbreaking, sentimental, and utterly charming An ode to love, family and the beauty of nature Set in the Ozarks, northeastern Oklahoma, Billy wants nothing than to have a puppy, or to be specific, two puppies He wants to train them for hunting, although his mother has forbidden him to use or own a gun until he is 21 or older For two years he waits, collecting enough money doing whatever jobs he can, he finally raises enough for two puppies who are delivered via train to the town closest to where he lives I knelt down and gathered them into my arms I buried my face between their wiggling bodies and cried The stationmaster, sensing something than two dogs and a boy, waited in silence My Dad didn t grow up in the Ozarks, but he trapped animals as a young boy to raise money for a dog Selling skins to Sears Roebu I read this book in sixth grade and cried my twelve year old heart out Another book I share with my sixth grade students What I find is that this book in particular allows the boys in my class to get emotional about a story and be able to talk about it together and normalize it It is almost a contest for them of who got most upset One student said he finished it on a plane ride home and that the flight attendant kept coming up to him asking him if he was alright I ve had many students tell me this is the best book they have ever read and I am glad that I get to share it with them each year I would love to do this as a read aloud but I know I wouldn t be able to get through it Just the part where Billy meets his dogs for the first time gets me.
Let me say first that some love this book and to be fair I never read it except to get an idea of the story updated please read what I actually said there Any book I don t care for enough to finish will usually get a 1 star or at best a 2 You will find in my books low ratings for Black Beauty, The Yearling, Old Yeller and any books that have the pain of life motif in common By the way this includes Cold Mountain Look up my review and you ll see I try to give recognition that it s well written but just not a book I can like And these ratings are how I feel and what I think of these books Some will say how they love these books and how possibly there was just no other way to realistically end the story I grew up in the Smokies and without going over my childhood, I had 2 dogs killedshot I ve lived through the loss of belove I read this book when I was in grade school and it always stuck out as an effortless read I still remember the storyline and the characters and the ending was magical.

Excellent story Heartwarming and spiritual this is one of my favorite books in all the land i read it at least a million times when i was little, and it holds such a special place in my heart, i can t even begin to review it having said all that, there are those who have a problem with the ending, because let s just say it s fairly devastating so, as a band aid to the heart of monica , i have rewritten the ending to make it a little jolly with all apologies to wilson rawls, whose ending i thought was spectacular, allow me to present THE WAY Where the Red Fern Grows SHOULD HAVE ENDED AND NOW DOES view spoiler The fourth time they treed, they were on top of a mountain After the long chase, I figured the animal was winded and would stay in the tree In a trot I A Loving Threesome, They Ranged The Dark Hills And River Bottoms Of Cherokee Country Old Dan Had The Brawn Little Ann Had The Brains, And Billy Had The Will To Make Them Into The Finest Hunting Team In The Valley Glory And Victory Were Coming To Them, But Sadness Waited Too Where the Red Fern Grows Is An Exciting Tale Of Love And Adventure You Ll Never Forget
