Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson RawlsI read this book in 4th grade. One day I was waiting for class when an obnoxious boy decided it would be a good idea to take it. I informed him that it was my favorite book in the whole wide world and if he didnt give it back that hed be sorry. He then threatened to tear the book in half. With that I walked over to him, hit him over the head with my cast (I had broken my wrist a few weeks prior), took my book and calmly walked away.
I think that a book that inspires someone to violence in the 4th grade is worth reading, dont you?

Toggle navigation. Billy is a ten-year-old boy whose only desire is to own a pair of coon hounds, but his family can't afford the seventy-five dollars for a pair of hounds. Billy finds a magazine with an advertisement for coon hounds at the price of twenty-five dollars for each hound. By working hard for two years, Billy manages to save the money for the hounds. His grandpa arranges a ride for Billy to the train depot so he can pick up his dogs, but Billy is impatient.
The adult Billy Colman narrates his childhood memories. Living with his Papa and Mama and three sisters in the Ozark Mountains in Oklahoma, all year-old Billy wants is two hounds with whom he can hunt "coons" racoons. His family cannot afford them, however, so Billy works odd jobs for two years and saves up the money to buy them. Only then does he tell his plan to his Grandpa , who helps arrange the purchase. After an initial adventure in which they scare off a mountain lion, Billy and his two hounds - a small, intelligent female dog he names Little Ann and a stronger, determined male dog he calls Old Dan - are inseparable. They learn all the angles of coon hunting and make a great team; no wily coon can outsmart Little Ann, and Old Dan is strong and sure.
Billy lives on a farm. He wants two good coonhounds very badly, but his Papa cannot afford any. Billy works hard, selling fruit and bait to fishermen, so eventually he has enough money for the dogs. He gives the money to his grandfather, who orders the dogs for him. Billy sneaks off in the middle of the night to go to town and pick them up. While in town, other children pick on him, but he stands up for himself and is helped by the marshal. On his way home, he and his two pups sleep in a cave.
