About the Author

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (1896-1953) lived for twenty-five years in Cross Creek, Florida, the area that is the setting for The Yearling, which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1939. 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.


"Magnificent...the novel's power is subtle, accumulating with every description of the natural world, until the book's rhythms become almost transcendental."--Lauren Groff
"A writer is often a lonely person, I think: Our worlds are populated by the things we imagine, the things we remember or dream. For me, the voice of childhood is the one I hear most clearly. And often it comes to me in the cadence and diction of the boy in The Yearling, a book I return to again and again."--Lois Lowry
"The Yearling is a distinguished book. Mrs. Rawlings has done a small miracle....She has captured a child's time sense, in which everything lasts forever and the change of season takes him always unawares."--Frances Woodward, Booklist
"Jody the most charming boy in the entire national gallery...His story, as Mrs. Rawlings tells it, opens windows wide for the reader, and lets in sunlight and fresh breezes just as surely as an older St. Francis did for another world."--William Soskin, Christian Science Monitor
"Rawlings writes with a sincere and unusual beauty...Her leisurely method of unfolding her plot fascinates the reader to the end of the book."--Philip Hartung, Forum
"With its excellent descriptions of Florida scrub landscapes, its skillful use of native vernacular, its tender relation between Jody and his pet fawn, The Yearling is a simply written, picturesque story of boyhood."--Times London
"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."--E.H. Walton, The New York Times
