ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Where the Red Fern Grows

Joseph Ashton stars as Billy, a poor, barefoot Ozark Mountains boy who yearns for hunting dogs of his own. He earns the money to purchase Old Dan and Little Ann and devotes himself to their care, nurturing and training. Soon, they become known as the best hunting dogs in Oklahoma. But what's a boy-and-his-dogs story without tragedy? A fatal accident involving a local bully and an encounter with a mountain lion will likely, to quote Billy, "bust your heart in two." This is a very good, and very decent, family film. There is no profanity. The only chase scenes are between hunting dogs and raccoons. The story extols personal responsibility, hard work, faith, family, and friendship.
