Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (August 8, 1896 – December 14, 1953)[1] 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.

I wish it did not end so quickly. Great book concerning the scrub.

Like Rawlings' The Yearling, this book feels more like a shared life than a story told. From a different time & certainly a different culture than most of us are familiar with. Well done.
