    I have read this book twice before, once as a child, and again as a young adult It was presented as the MOD choice on the group On the Southern Literary Trail by Tom, so I took the opportunity to start the New Year with a Pulitzer Prize winning novel that I already knew would be a wonderful read I had forgotten just how great it really was.The setting is Florida in the 1870 s, before c...

    I started this classic novel with only a vague idea of what it was about I knew the book was supposed to be sad and I knew the yearling was a deer But that was it As it turns out, I was partly wrong about both things Yes, the novel is sad, extremely so, but its overriding feature is an almost ecstatic love of animals, especially wild ones And yes, the yearling is a deer butimportantly, it s also the story s protagonist a 12 year old boy caught right in that moment between an innoce I started this classic novel with only a vague idea of what it was about I knew the book was supposed to be sad and I knew the yearling was a deer But that was it As it turns out, I was partly wrong abou...

    Sometimes you read a book and it is just words on a page, sometimes it becomes a story And sometimes, when you re very lucky the book becomes so real you feel transported right into the pages That was my experience here.I loved Jody and Penny s relationship, how overwhelming Penny s love is for his son, how much ...

    The Yearling is a fine coming of age novel that I have somehow managed to avoid reading until know Fortunately, thanks to the fine folks at the On the Southern Literary Trail Goodreads group, I finally had the opportunity to read and discuss it with others who appreciate it Uninformed readers such as I will automatically assume that the yearling in question is the fawn prominently displayed on the cover but that is not really correct It soon becomes apparent that the fawn is but a minor chara The Yearling is a fine coming of age novel that I have somehow managed to avoid reading until know Fortunately, thanks to the fine folks at the On the Southern Literary Trail Goodreads group, I finally had the opportunity to read and discuss it with others who appreciate it Uninformed readers such as I will automatically assume that the yearling in question is the fawn prominently displayed on the cover but t...

    A Civil War era coming of age novel that s a spiritual cousin to Where the Red Fern Grows, but with a broader story and a deeper dive into life s challenges Reading this book reminds you how deeply people understood the consequences of choice, as sloth translated brutally into starvation Indeed, the need to work for one s supper every day, planning for both the moment and the future, contrasts starkly with our present day welfare state that, for some, rewards indolence.One other thing that jum A Civil War era coming of age novel that s a spiritual cousin to Where the Red Fern Grows, but with a broader story and a deeper dive into life s challenges Reading this book reminds you how deeply people understood the consequences of choice, as sloth translated brutally into starvation Indeed, the need to work for one s supper every day, planning for both the moment and the future, contrasts starkly with our present day welfare state that, for some, rewards indolence.One other thing that jumps out from thi...

    A classic I had never been assigned to read or really had recommended, this 1938 novel was suggested to me by a librarian and I read it chapter by chapter over a number of weeks.Taking place on Baxter s Island in post Civil War Florida, this follows the bond formed between a boy, Jody Baxter, and a fawn he rescues from the wild and attempts to domesticate I found it surprisingly touching, with some beautiful passages depicting the ineffable link we may feel between ourselves and nature, espec A classic I had never been assigned to read or really had recommended, this 1938 novel was suggested to me by a librarian and I read it chapter by chapter over a number of weeks.Taking place on Baxter s Island in post Civil War Florida, this follows the ...
