Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this classic story of the Baxter family of inland Florida and their wild, hard, satisfying life, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings has written one of the great novels of our times. A rich and varied story - tender in its understanding of boyhood, crowded with the excitement of the backwoods hunt, with vivid descriptions of the primitive, beautiful hammock country, with humor and earthy philosophy - The Yearling is a novel for readers of all tastes and ages. Its glowing picture of life that is far and refreshingly removed from modern patterns of living becomes universal in its revelation of simple courageous people and the abiding beliefs they live by. Winner of Pulitzer Prize in 1938, The Yearling was made available the following year in a special edition illustrated by the distinguished American artist, N.C. Wyeth. The original paintings have been re-photographed and new plates made for this handsome volume.

About the Author

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

The late Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings was born on August 8, 1896 in Washington D.C., and lived there as a child, and on her father's farm in Maryland. She has said that she considers her Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Yearling the most unified of her books. It had been in her mind for many years, and she spent five years gathering material for it. The actual writing took two years. The list of honors she received during her lifetime is very long and includes having three of her works chosen as Book-of-the-Month Club selections, receiving the Pulitzer Prize and the O'Henry Prize for The Yearling. She was also awarded honorary degrees from Rollins College, the University of Tampa, and the University of Florida. Mrs. Rawlings has left a literary legacy which includes seven novels, a cookbook, a host of short stories which appeared in the major national magazines, two radio scripts, and two movies, with The Yearling translated into sixteen languages.
