    Default Books about kids and hunting dogs?

    I'm looking for recommendations on authors or books to turn the kid on to hunting and hounds. Looking for stories rather than training type books.

    Where the Red Fern Grows, not sure of author and Rascal, by Sterling North. Two great books about hounds and kids.

    Yep, Where the Red Fern Grows was among my favorites as a kid. I've never run hounds, but that book sure made me want to.

    A great book! Where The Red Fern Grows...also available in DVD, a double feature with part 2 of the story.

    If you're not looking for hound-specific fiction, I've got a couple of (what I think are) fine suggestions:

    Big Red, Outlaw Red, Snow Dog, and Stormy - all four by Jim Kjelgaard
    The Brian Books - Hatchet, The River, Brian's Winter - by Gary Paulsen
    Passing up shots on mergansers since 1992.
