I recommend this book, because it has all emotion, example: HAPPY, ANGRY, SAD, REGRET. This book is about coon hunting, and both of dogs die eventually. However, at the end, Billy's family got many money that they can go to town and between two hounds graveyard red fern grew. I enjoyed this book, because it's adventure of little boy's huntering. If I were Billy, would never deal with Rubin, because he always lies, and if Billy didn't make a deal, Rubin wouldn't die, because of accident. I wouldn't go hunting, because I don't want to kill innocent animals.
