Description


A Pulitzer Prize-winning classic originally published over 50 years ago, Rawling's timeless story of backwoods Florida and the tender relationship of a young boy and his tame fawn continues to delight and enthrall readers.

About the Author


Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (1896-1953) lived for 25 years in Cross Creek, Florida, the area that is the setting for "The Yearling," She is the author of several earlier novels as well as a memoir, "Cross Creek," which inspired the acclaimed motion picture of the same name.


Praise For…


“Never before has Mrs. Rawlings created a set of characters who are so close and real to the reader, whose intimate life one can share without the taint of unconscious patronage."



“Heart-stopping adventure and heart-wrenching human elements…. This is a classic well worth its Pulitzer Prize. Earthy dialect and homespun wisdom season the story, giving it a unique and unforgettable flavor, and N.C. Wyeth's warm, soft illustrations capture an era of rough subsistence and sweet survival.”
