50th Anniversary Edition - Winner of the Pulitzer Prize. A literary sensation when originally published fifty years ago, The Yearling has gone on to become a classic work of American literature. This is a timeless story of backwoods Florida and the tender relationship of a young boy and his tame fawn has continued to delight and enthrall readers of all ages.

Rawling's description of the Florida wilderness is wonderful. A really heartwarming, easy read.

Oh my, if this book doesn't break your heart, the movie (with Gregory Peck as the father) will. A great book, but bring your box of Kleenex.

Very good book, a classic that I think all children need to read between the ages of 12 and 18.

This book is a masterpiece and unquestionably one of the finest I've ever read. It's written with an elegance that is superb and is writing at it's best. It has joined my top 10 beside "Platero by Juan Ramon Jimenez," "Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell" "Breathing Lessons by Anne Tyler," "The Blue Whale by Stanislao Nievo," and "Watership Down."

This is one of the first (what I considered) big boy books I read when I was little and just got done reading it again 40 something years later. All I will say is it will bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye before you are done.
