A check line is a leather line about 1 1/4 inches wide and approximately 15 feet long and forked about 5 feet from the end, one going to the right side of each mule's bridle bit. The other check line was identical except it went to the left side of both mules. These check lines was used to guide the mules when turning or backing up. http://www.samlindsey.com/Logging/8Wheel/Graysonia_Mem.asp

The book 'Where The Red Fern Grows' is about a boy who lives in the Ozark mountain country of Oklahoma. He wants hounds very bad, and saves money to buy them. The rest of the …book is about the adventuers they get into together.
Acording to the book it is set to grow whenever two loving souls are placed side by side.
There are two types of conflict. One's psychological. It deals with the conflict between Billy Coleman and his parents over spending money. In tight times, Billy's parents wan…t to make sure that survival needs are met. They don't want to pay for frills, or take chances on something so risky as coon-hunting dogs. The other conflict's physical. And there are two main examples. One's the ghost coon hunting contest between Billy's dogs, and the dogs belonging to Rainie and Rubin Pritchard. Billy's dogs Old Dan and Little Annie win. But Billy doesn't want to kill the coon. So the Pritchard dogs fight Billy's dogs, and the Pritchard boys fight Billy. The conflict ends with Rubin falling on his own axe. The second physical conflict's the treeing of the mountain lion. The lion leaps at Billy. The conflict ends with Old Dan killing the lion, saving Billy's life, and dying later that night from his wounds.
it really depends on what kind of books you like. i personally thought it was amazing but the ending was phenomenal, where both dogs die, he buries them side by side on a hill…, which conveniently, a red fern grows directly between them, just like the legend. i though it was so precious. which explains the title \\where the red fern grows" it is pretty good, how hes trying to get money for the dogs, but later on it has some surprising events that take place, like the part when he is caught in the water and the dog saves him, i would recommend it if you like this kind of book, if it doesn't sound interesting, it probably isn't to you.
A coon is a raccoon, coon is just short for raccoon... what do you think it is conawana din dong idiot
