There is nothing Billy Colman wants more than a pair of hunting dogs, but times are tough for farming families in the Ozarks. "Maybe some day when we can afford it, you can have them," Billy's father tells him, "but not right now." Billy doesn't give up. Determined to get a pair of hunting dogs, Billy finds ways to raise the money. With great patience, Billy saves all the money he can, and after two years he is finally able to buy his hunting dogs. Billy works with his dogs, Old Dan and Little Ann, as often as he can, training them to track and tree coons, and teaching them how to avoid "Old Ringtail's" tricks. Though his dogs bring him pleasure, there are trials ahead for Billy as well. Billy learns the value of hard work, patience, and persistence, and eventually sees how God can use all things - even a pair of hunting dogs - to answer the prayers of his family.

    We highly recommend Progeny Press

    We highly recommend Progeny Press Study Guides for students. They strategically guide the students through great literature books while asking questions that cause them to utilize their thinking and reasoning skills. But above all, they take the students back to the scriptures concerning topics addressed in the reading books. My children/students enjoy using the study guides as well. I am so thankful for Progeny Press and highly recommend them to other families.

    Sharing Childhood Favorites With My Children

    I love the Progeny Press literature studies, and Where The Red Fern Grows is no different. The questions are thoughtful and evoke critical-thinking skills, something my teens need help with. There is just the right amount of content and study questions, multiple choice questions, and thinking questions about the author's intent, literary devices. Love it!!
