Rawling's description of the Florida wilderness is wonderful. A really heartwarming, easy read.
This book is a great story!
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.
a favorite story that depicts jody moving from childhood, to adolescence and forward. very moving and refreshing in its innocence and spirit.
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.
