Where the Red Fern Grows is a story about a boy named Billy and his two dogs, Little Ann and Old Dan and their adventures. The setting is in the 1930’s in the Ozarks. There are three essential terms you need to know before you read the book, they are Perseverance, Loyalty, and Bravery. Billy, grandpa, papa, mama, and the two dogs all show these traits. You will learn more about these traits in the next three paragraphs.
This paragraph is about Perseverance. My definition is when you stick to something and don’t give up. One example is when Billy saved $50.00 for two dogs. A second example is when Billy walked into the icy cold water for more than one minute to save his dog. A text to text connection would be when Brian in Hatchet stayed underwater for 5-10 minutes to get a survival pack. This is my paragraph about perseverance.
Loyalty is the next trait. My definition of loyalty is to stay at something even if it is hard. One example is when Billy lead papa and the judge into the storm to find grandpa. A second example is when Little Ann cut her paw and Old Dan refused to hunt without her. A text to self connection would be if it was raining my dad wouldn’t make me go hunting. This is my paragraph about loyalty.
Bravery is the last trait. My definition of bravery is to stick to something in spite of difficulty. One example is when Billy fought Freckle Face in Thalequah. A second example is when Billy stays in the storm to find grandpa. A text to world connection is when soldiers risk their lives at war. This is the third trait you need to know before reading the book.
You have come to the end of my Where the Red Fern Grows essay. The most enjoyable part of the story was when Billy saved Little Ann from the river. If you like adventure I recommend this book to you. If you don’t like animals being killed don’t read this book.
