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 a 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.
For ages 10 to 14.
