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. A loving threesome, Billy and his two dogs range the dark hills and river bottoms of Cherokee country.

Soon their skills will be put to the test as they brave the dangers of the wilds for the ultimate glory. Wilson Rawls was born in Oklahoma in 1913.
