More About Wilson Rawls

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Wilson Rawls is the author of the timeless classic Where the Red Fern Grows and the acclaimed novel Summer of the Monkeys. He was born on a small farm in the Ozark Mountains and spent much of his boyhood roaming northeastern Oklahoma with his only companion, an old bluetick hound. Rawls's hound was not only a friend, but served as an audience for the endless stories he loved to tell. Though he didn't have access to real books until he was of high-school age, Rawls's modest beginnings provided the foundation upon which greater success was built.

Wilson Rawls was born in 1963.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Ah a blast from the past  Jun 5, 2008
I had to read this book in elementary school, but I've been thinking about it lately and wondered if it was still around. Looks like it's not only around, but being used in schools just as regularly as before. Also with 1200+ reviews, I'm not sure it needs any more, including this one.

I will say that even though I haven't read it in twenty years, that it still makes me want to shed a little tear. I can't say that for many other books.
Thoroughy enjoyed it!  May 27, 2008
I'm 45 now, but read this book in Elementary school. This is the book that got me hooked on reading. Even after all these years I still think of the story from time to time.
No redeeming value  May 23, 2008
I have finished Where the Red Fern Grows. That was a terrible book. It has nothing redeeming about it. It lost me when the 10-year-old couldn't think of an alternative to chopping down the biggest Sycamore in the river bottom, that you can't always win was lost as an emphasis, that trees are dispensable if you make a promise to a dog, that it is fair to have two dogs trained to chase ONE raccoon, that the fact you have to train them to do it because the raccoon is actually smart enough to not be killed by them also goes lost, and, worst of all, that a majestic mountain lion in its own habitat gets an ax in his back because he is defending himself from bloodhounds and is made out to be a scourge, an EVIL predator, that, lastly, there is no mention made that it is the 10-year-old's fault that the dogs die because he is the jerk who trained them to tree critters to begin with and didn't teach them which ones they ought not challenge. I can find no bad review of this piece of trash anywhere. I am positive I am the only one in the world who thinks this way, else why is it on a reading list for our kids? I will buy my grandson "Lassie Comes Home." That is a story deserving of the status of classic. At least, it is about a fantastic dog. The bloodhound beasties were not even rescue dogs. They were "trained" to wantonly kill raccoons or animals for the pelts: Davie Crockett hats. Goodness. The book made me sick. The popularity of a book is not moral equivalence.
A meaningful excursion into the potent power of affection among humans and animals  Apr 15, 2008
Any animal enthusiast will find this heart wrenching novel an absolute pleasure as Billy's attachment to his dogs (and their fondness of each other) unquestionably will resonate with all pet owners.

This book offers the extra benefit of providing inspiring examples of virtuous human qualities. Billy shows his adherence to personal accountability via the manner that he finds the money himself to purchase his hounds; a feat not easily accomplished by a child. Billy also exemplifies his absolute devotion to his family and dogs matched only by the loyalty echoed to him from his dogs.

You will find this book will be a very satisfying ordeal from Billy's acquisition of the pups to their saddening yet revealing conclusion regarding the red fern. I highly recommend this book to animal lovers of all ages and to those looking for meaningful excursion into the potent power of affection among humans and animals.
Where the Red Fern Grows Book Review  Feb 27, 2008
Where the Red Fern Grows was a really excellent read. The author, Wilson Rawls, made it seem as if I were living and experiencing the adventures the main character, Billy, had with his dogs.

This book is about an old man named Billy Colman. He finds a hound that was being attacked by a pack of dogs and saves the hound, patches up the dog's wounds, let it eat and sleep and set it free. The man then had a flashback into his childhood.

The boy, Billy, lives nears the Ozark Mountains and has a wish for two dogs, coon hounds to be specific. His family is poor and can not afford much. Billy begs and begs but no dogs come. But, when a group of fishermen leave their camping ground to go back home, Billy goes to see if they left anything behind. When he comes to the campground he sees a magazine and an ad for coon hounds, 25$ each. Back then 25$ was a lot of money, but he needed 50$ for two coons. So after saving up for two whole years of picking blackberries, helping out in his grandfather's store, and making money in any other way, he finally gets enough money to buy the dogs.

His grandfather wrote in to see if the dogs were still available and the person writes back that they were and that the two dogs would be there in about a week. The boy cannot wait that long and decides to make the journey all the way to town to pick up his long awaited dogs. He walked a long way but arrives in town to pick up his dogs. He the begins the journey back carrying his dogs all the way back to home. After facing a perilous journey home, Billy (after being scolded) begins a life of adventures hunting coons and of sharing undying love with his two precious coon hounds.
