An American classic--and Pulitzer Prize-winning story--that shows the ultimate bond between child and animal.
No novel better epitomizes the love between a child and a pet than The Yearling. When young Jody Baxter adopts and orphaned fawn he calls Flag, he makes it a part of his family and his best friend. But life in the Florida backwoods is harsh, and so, as his family fights off wolves, bears, and even alligators, and faces failure in their tenuous subsistence farming, Jody must finally part with his dear animal friend.
There has been a film and even a musical based on this moving story, a fine work of American literature which won Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings a Pulitzer Prize.
