The children's classic, "Where the Red Fern Grows," was written during the period when the author, W. Wilson Rawls, lived here in Idaho Falls, Idaho from 1958 to 1975. To commemorate this event, a statue has been placed on the lawn of the -------. Our thanks go to the generous support of people from all over the United States who helped this dream to come true. The life-sized statue depicts Billy Coleman and his two hounds and was created by Marilyn Hansen, a local Idaho Falls artist.
Information for this was drawn from the materials collected by Madelaine Love in 1997 as a part of the "Woodrow Wilson Rawls: Dreams Can Come True" research project funded by a grant from the Idaho Humanities Council and the Idaho Falls Public -------. The original interview tapes and transcripts, photographs and other materials are housed in the Idaho Room of the Idaho Falls Public ------- and used with permission.
