The protagonist and narrator of the novel, 10-year-old Billy loves his dogs and coon hunting more than anything. He is also a sensitive, likable young man who cares deeply about his family and meditates frequently upon faith and death. Though he is a great coon hunter, he ultimately cares more about his dogs than about success; they have a loving bond that goes beyond mere loyalty.
