Where the Red Fern Grows

Does Rawls make this character seen believable, or is he too good to be true?

Billy demonstrates great bravery and strength of character. (Can you please explain specific scenes in the book)

Billy is an intrepid young protagonist. Given that this novel was written for young readers, I think he was believable. His tenacity for achieving his goals stands out without showing him to be too perfect or unbelievable. Billy makes mistakes but learns from them as well.
