She is the author of several earlier novels as well as a memoir, Cross Creek, which inspired the acclaimed motion picture of the same name.
PATRICIA REILLY GIFF is a two-time Newbery Honor winner, and her many popular books include those in the Polk Street School and the Polka Dot Private Eye series. A children's bookseller as well as an award-winning author, she lives in Trumbull, Connecticut.

Reviews

"Never before has Mrs. Rawlings created a set of characters who are so close and real to the reader, whose intimate life one can share without the taint of unconscious patronage."
"Heart-stopping adventure and heart-wrenching human elements.... This is a classic well worth its Pulitzer Prize. Earthy dialect and homespun wisdom season the story, giving it a unique and unforgettable flavor, and N.C. Wyeth's warm, soft illustrations capture an era of rough subsistence and sweet survival."
