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.

      Thanks Andrea, that means a lot because I am a big fan of your work. I especially like the great shapes and compositions you’re getting in your ‘Tarzan’ illustrations.
