Ever read a book, and then seen the movie? The book is usually better right? That’s most likely because of the differences. The book is more descriptive most of the time. Events in the book are missing from the movie. Or the movie adds some in.
There are many differences between the book and movie,
Where the Red Fern Grows by: Wilson Rawls. One minor difference is how many sisters Billy, the main character, has. In the book he has three; in the movie he has two. The third is smarter than the other two sisters. A major difference is the fact that one of Billy’s sisters catches him leaving for Tahlequah in the movie. In the book know one notices until he is long gone. He goes there to get his dogs. Some similarities are how Billy saves money to buy his coon hounds. He picks berries and does odd jobs. The legend is also true. A little Indian boy and girl died and in the spring a sacred red fern grew in between them. These are just a few example differences and similarities. There are many more, like any other book and movie. Read this book than see the movie to find out just how many more.
