For fans of Old Yeller and Shiloh, Where the Red Fern Grows is a beloved classic that captures the powerful bond between man and man?s best friend. This special edition includes new material, including a note to readers from Newbery Medal winner and Printz Honor winner Clare Vanderpool, a letter from Wilson Rawls to aspiring writers, original jacket artwork, and more.

Billy has long dreamt of owning not one, but two dogs. So when he?s finally able to save up enough money for two pups to call his own?Old Dan and Little Ann?he?s ecstatic. It?s true that times are tough, but together they?ll roam the hills of the Ozarks.

Soon Billy and his hounds become the finest hunting team in the valley. Stories of their great achievements spread throughout the region, and the combination of Old Dan?s brawn, Little Ann?s brains, and Billy?s sheer will seems unbeatable. But tragedy awaits these determined hunters?now friends?and Billy learns that hope can grow out of despair.
