Theme Never give up The two most important themes in this story No matter what your size, you can always accomplish great things. Recommendation I highly recommend this book. It is a great novel that will teach you a life lesson. It will truly touch your heart Prezi by: Autumn Brockelman Quotes "Yes, I know it is still there, for in my heart, I believe the legend of the sacred red fern." (pg. 249) This is important baecause it pretty much is the whole meaning of the story. "I knew the pups were mine, all mine, yet I couldn't move." (pg.37) This quote is important because it had taken Billy so long to raise up enough money to buy the two dogs, and they were finally his. "In the center of the heart were two names, 'Dan' and 'Ann.'" (pg.48) This quote is important because it symbolizes that Old Dan and Little Ann are actually Billy's dogs.
