Where the Red Fern Grows

''I've been out in storms like this before, all by myself. I've never left my dogs in the woods, and I'm not going to now, even if I have to look for them myself.'" pg. 199"I knelt down and put my arms around them. I knew that if it hadn't been for their loyalty and unselfish courage I would have probably been killed by the slashing claws of the devil cat. 'I don't know how I'll ever pay you back for what you've done,' I said, 'but I'll never forget it.'" pg. 230 "I'm sure the red fern has grown and has completely covered the two little mounds. I know it is still there, hiding its secret beneath those long, red leaves, but it wouldn't be hidden from me for part of my life is buried there too. Yes, I know it is still there, for in my heart I believe the legend of the sacred red fern." pg. 249

This book, "Where the Red Fern Grows," is an exciting story about a boy and two dogs. Each night, they get ready for hunting raccoons. I like how the author writes sad scenes very well. It always makes me wonder what happens next. At the end of the book is the most exciting and sad part. Sometimes, I wish it has a happier ending. This book is for readers that likes adventrous books.
