WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE ''A literary masterpiece for all ages . . . Her world of rural America is so removed from ours, yet her story takes us there, steeping us in its landscape, language and people as it tells us a tale of growing up, of love and laughter, of tragedy and loss and grief - a tale that is so compelling that it turns the page for you: The Yearling leaves you tearful, breathless, exhilarated'' MICHAEL MORPURGO ''A genuine classic . . . The Yearling is a magnificent, transparent, slow-moving river. Its style is direct and free of fireworks . . . I was stunned to awe by The Yearling ''s beauty and strength'' LAUREN GROFF An instant bestseller when it was released in 1938, this Pulitzer Prize winning novel has been loved by readers for many years. In this classic story of the Baxter family and their wild, hard, but fulfilling life in remote Florida, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings wrote one of the great novels of our times. A rich and varied tale - tender in its understanding of the bond between boy and animal, crowded with the excitement of the backwoods hunt, with vivid descriptions of the harsh but beautiful country - The Yearling is a novel for readers of all ages.
