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.

    "Sad but good"

    It is a great book it makes you think of the title and why it's named that. Great book for kids in or going to middle school. Best book I have ever read.

    "Heald is a delight!"

    Having only know Anthony Heald as the creepy psychiatrist from the movie Silence of the Lambs, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. However his rendition of this wonderful novel is touching, multi faceted, and terrific.

    "Childhood memories relived"

    i read this and the shiloh trilogy when i was about 8. i then vowed to never read them again. well i broke that. to this day, absolutely amazing book and the narration is done very well. nice even pace that makes it easy to do chapter after chapter. one thing i will say is that if you havn't read this before, don't listen to the end at work or anything. bad juju

    "Favorite Book of ALL TIME!"

    Since first reading this amazing book in 3rd grade, I've read and reread, listened to and relistened to this amazing story close to a hundred times! Still makes me cry every time, and I still want a couple hound dogs of my own.
