The Yearling. By Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. Illustrations by Thomas B. Allen. Illustrated Edition. Franklin Library. Franklin Center, 1984.

$42.00

First published in 1938, The Yearling won the Pulitzer Prize and was adapted to film twice–once in 1946 and again in 1994. The work was published after Rawlings’ other projects were repeatedly rejected by her editor, the acclaimed Maxwell Perkins. Yet the result of so much feedback, The Yearling, has been one of the most endearing novels of the last 100 years. Children and adults alike have reread the work, finding its protagonist Jody Baxter, his family, and the fawn he adopts a deeply moving cast of characters. In some ways a brutal bildungsroman, in other ways a heartfelt tale of familial bonds, The Yearling is a classic of young adult literature, and Rawlings’ best work. This Illustrated Edition provides Thomas B. Allen’s effectual paintings throughout the text.
