Book: Where The Red Fern Grows
A blizzard keeps Billy and the dogs inside for five days. The first night after it stops, the three race out for a night of hunting and it doesn’t take long for Old Dan to pick up the scent of a river coon. In this part of the story Billy and the dogs are prowling the river bottoms often, from time to time they get outsmarted by a sly raccoon, but they are quickly becoming some of the best hunters in the mountains.
