Billy, Old Dan and Little Ann — a Boy and His Two Dogs...

A loving threesome, they ranged the dark hills and river bottoms of Cherokee country. Old Dan had the brawn, Little Ann had the brains — and Billy had the will to train them to be the finest hunting team in the valley. Glory and victory were coming to them, but sadness waited too. And close by was the strange and wonderful power that's only found...

An exciting tale of love and adventure you'll never forget.

From the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Wilson Rawls grew up on a small farm in the Ozark Mountains of Oklahoma. There were no schools where he lived so his mother taught Rawls and his sisters how to read and write. He says that reading the book The Call of the Wild changed his life and gave him the notion that he would like to grow up to write a book like it. He shared his dream with his father, and his father gave him the encouraging advice, "Son, a man can do anything he sets out to do, if he doesn't give up." Rawls never forgot his father's words, and went on to create two novels about his boyhood that have become modern classics.

This is such a cute book. The story of Billy and his two hound dogs never gets old. My mother gave this to me after we got a bluetick coonhound, and I was so glad. It made me cry, laugh, and root for the main character and his dogs as they enter contests, endure hardships, and learn from their mistakes. This is a great read for kids that love animals, and adults, too. You won't forget this classic children's story, and it will make you want to have your own Old Dan and Little Ann to be there for you.

The best boy/dog book after "My Dog Skip."

And really, is there anything more endearing that a boy with a dog? Well, yes: a boy with two dogs.

Add the country vistas and sounds, plus the love of Billy's family, and you have a swift read that fills your heart.

Brings back some of my fondest memories -- of hiking with my beagle through the mountains. Nothing like that feeling of freedom. I recall it vividly, as does Billy from beginning to end.
