Old Dan had the brawn, Little Ann had the brains-and Billy had the will to train them to be the finest hunting team in the valley. Glory and victory were coming to them, but sadness waited, too. And close by was the strange and wonderful power that's only found...Where the Red Fern Grows. An exciting tale of lave and adventure you'll never forget.
The book is hard to "get into". I have decided to order the movie and get the story that way. It being about a boy and his dogs, I am told by friends it is a very good book, but just not my cup of tea. It's not a bad book, just doesn't peak my interest. I will probably wait a while to order the movie from NetFlix.

The most resounding image from this novel was the one that included spilled dog intestines. It was not pretty. Though it is written fairly well, the story is, as a whole, disappointing.
