What is a check-line as reference in the book Where the Red Fern Grows?
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

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.
Between Old Dan and Little Ann's graves.
The story takes place in The Ozark Mountains of NorthEastern Oklahoma. It is in the time period of 'The Great Depression'
