Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

This classic about a 10-year-old boy growing up in the Ozark mountains with his inseparable pair of coonhounds will warm the hearts of young and old alike. Great Stone Face Award.

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.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

I reread this book every few years. As a kid, as a teenager, as an adult, hands down one of the best and most moving books I've ever read. I love how I have it on audio now as well as a (now coverless) paperback copy.

As a person who doesn't like reading much, I read this book for a report in school. Thirty-five years later, it is still my #1 book of all time. I also enjoy the movie that was created from this book. Thank you Wilson Rawls for a wonderful story.
