Publisher's Summary

A loving threesome, Billy and his two dogs ranged the dark hills and river bottoms of Cherokee country. Old Dan has the brawn, Little Ann has the brains, and Billy has the will to make them into the finest hunting team in the valley. Glory and victory were coming to them, but sadness waited too. Soon their skills will be put to the test as they brave the dangers of the wilds for the ultimate glory.

Since its publication over forty years ago, this heartwarming tale of a boy and his dogs has touched millions. A tale of adventure, special friendship and coming-of-age, Where the Red Fern Grows makes for delightful listening. This unabridged production, featuring a moving performance by Anthony Heald, brings this enduring classic to life and makes a powerful story even more unforgettable.

    "Great!!"

    I'd forgotten how much I loved this old classic. The narrator can greatly impact the quality of any audiobook, this one was the perfect pick. I would highly recommend!!

    "Read this it's great."

    I love this book. I read it as a child and remembering it as one of my favorites I decided to listen to the audible version. Twenty years later it is still just as good as I remember.

    "Outstanding, brought back... "

    to me the memories of being a child experiencing this book for the first time. Shared the memory with my own son of the joys of the Ozarks as we retraced the steps of Billy, Ole Dan and Little Ann and re-learn the lessons of loyalty, determination and just how much God loves His creations.

    Story
    "Captivating story, written and read with nostalgic heroism!"

    I like the realistic elements of American boyhood from yesteryear retold in such a natural and unassuming fashion to not only hold the attention span of my 7 year-old son, but kept him up at night thinking and talking about the story and upon waking begged to hear more ! A true classic in every way! The audio voice skillfully portrayed and distinguished the characters which made for an enjoyable time of listening and actually enhances the story in my opinion. Highly recommend for emotionally mature children, particularly for that boy who loves the great outdoors!
