Meet the Author

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (August 8, 1896 – December 14, 1953)
was an American author who lived in rural Florida and wrote novels
with rural themes and settings. Her best known work, The Yearling,
about a boy who adopts an orphaned fawn, won a Pulitzer Prize for
fiction in 1939 and was later made into a movie, also known as The
Yearling. The book was written long before the concept of
young-adult fiction, but is now commonly included in teen-reading
lists. Source: Wikipedia
