11 essential books for dog lovers

Here are 11 must-read books for dog lovers. 

2. "Where the Red Fern Grows," by Wilson Rawls

An auto-didact who grew up during the depression, Rawls only ever wrote two books – "Summer of Monkeys" in 1960 and "Where the Red Fern Grows" in 1961. He spent most of the rest of his life as a motivational speaker. But somehow he hit an instant classic with "Where the Red Fern Grows." This tale of a boy and his two hunting dogs is sweetly written and easy for readers of any age to follow. Read it, if you haven't. If you have, read it again.
