The red fern represents the spirit of billy's dogs. It is based on a native american legend that says only an angel can plant the seeds of a red fern, which never dies, and makes the spot sacred.

According to the book- the red fern represents the strongest kind of love. The example given was according to Indian legend one winter there was a blizzard and a man and woman were lost in the woods. The next spring a red fern grew where the couple died... so the red fern represents the greatest possible love. And here it's the unconditional love a boy has for his pets.
