Before Old Yeller or Where the Red Fern Grows, there was Big Red, the classic boy-and-dog story of adventure and friendship in the wild mountains of Pennsylvania.

Danny, a trapper's son, knows more about the woods, trapping, and hunting than he does about the big city or dog shows, but when Red's owner sees seventeen-year-old Danny's love for the dog, he entrusts the boy with training the champion Irish Setter.

Filled with heart, and loved by young readers for decades, this timeless classic thrills with backwoods adventure as Danny and Red challenge Old Majesty, the biggest, most dangerous bear of the Wintapi, meet the challenges of the wild country, compete in championship dog shows, and become best friends.

Bob Kuhn, the award-winning wildlife illustrator, contributes black-and-white drawings that open each chapter.

This much-loved classic is great for kids who love dogs, adventure, and the outdoors, plus it's a great read aloud showing the value of courage, friendship, and overcoming adversity.
