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.

    "Love this book from my childhood!!"

    I first read this book in middle school and now as a 20 year old I still have love for this book. Where the red fern grows was the first novel that I ever really enjoyed and loved. Because of the book I now enjoy reading several kinds of novels. I owe my love of reading to this book and every time I reread it, it never disappoints!!

    Story
    "Wonderful"
    Would you listen to Where the Red Fern Grows again? Why?

    My husband and I listened to this with our daughter on road trips. It was wonderful. We had read it as kids, so we really wanted to introduce our daughter to this book. She really enjoyed it and there were many times that we sat in our car in a parking lot waiting for a chapter to end. The narrator was wonderful.


    What about Anthony Heald’s performance did you like?

    When he read the initial part of helping a wandering dog and at the end when he let the dog go. It was all so emotional. Three of us cried in the car many times.

    "What a great story!"

    I haven't loved listening to a story as much as this in a long time. Beautifully written and told--can't say enough about it.

    "The Best Story Ever"

    I have read this book I don't know how many times. It was a required book when I was in Jr. High in the late 70's and once I read it I was hooked for life. I have spent many hours lost in story happy, sad, on the edge waiting even though I know what is going to happen. Everyone should take the time to read or listen to book!
