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.

    "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!

    "Wonderful Story and Fantastic Narration!"

    Heartwarming story. I read this as a teenager and decided to revisit the story on Audible. The Narration is probably the best I've heard. I loved listening to this classic!

    "Most beautiful story I have ever hear"

    My 4th grade teacher read this book to me and ever since its been my alltime favorite book. I am not much of a reader but this is a book I could re-read over and over and never get tired of the heartwarming tale of Billy and his 2 loving dogs, Old danne and Little Anne.

    "A great book to read together with your son"

    My son and I listened to this while following along with the book. The narrator helped make great pictures in our head. We enjoyed it.

    "Wonderful Story"

    I can't read this book enough times. The narrator really captures the emotion of this book. Caution: do not listen while driving!

    "Spoiler alert and deal breaker"

    I would not have purchased this book, let alone ever had it in my wish list, if someone had mentioned that the dogs die.
    That is always a deal breaker for me. So if you feel the same way, I have just saved you a few bucks!
