Publisher Comments:

No novel better epitomizes the love between a child and a pet than andlt;Iandgt;The Yearling.andlt;/Iandgt; Young Jody adopts an orphaned fawn he calls Flag and makes it a part of his family and his best friend. But life in the Florida backwoods is harsh, and so, as his family fights off wolves, bears, and even alligators, and faces failure in their tenuous subsistence farming, Jody must finally part with his dear animal friend. There has been a film and even a musical based on this moving story, a fine work of great American literature.

Synopsis:

In 19th century backwoods Florida, a young boy named Jody adopts an orphaned fawn who becomes a treasured member of the family. This Putlizer Prize-winning classic features a reading group guide.
