Story time: Where the Red Fern Grows (by Wilson Rawls)

When I was in eighth grade, at Wilson Middle School, we read  Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls.  At that point, I had wanted to be a veterinarian for half my life, but this was the first book that showed me how deep the human-animal and animal-animal bonds are.

It is also a story of determination.  This young boy dreams of nothing but having two Redbone Coonhounds.  He works multiple jobs to save the money, and sets out on the adventure of a lifetime to train these dogs.  Old Dan and Little Ann are fiercely loyal to him.

It is a book filled with universal truth, and I encourage young people (and those young at heart) to read or re-read it.

Animals have many lessons to teach us, and Rawls does an excellent job of portraying the story of this young boy and his love for his dogs.

All of us should be so lucky to have a dog love us even once in our lives.  Infinity Pet Love.
