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.

    "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!

    Story
    "11 - year old reviewer"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Where the Red Fern Grows to be better than the print version?

    No, I think they're both really good. I liked the narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I best like the part where Billy cut two little holes in his gunny sack for his two pups to poke their heads through.


    What does Anthony Heald bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Anthony Heald reads with a lot of passion, so at the ending it was sadder then if I were to have read the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    What moved me in the book most, was when little Anne lost her will to live and died by Old Dan.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is very moving and I almost cried at the end. It was beautiful and sad, but also happy. I would recommend this book.
