Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (1896-1953),
American novelist, whose works explore the
need for humans to live in harmony with the
natural environment. Her books reflect her
love of the land, particularly the land and
people of north central Florida. In 1939
Rawlings was awarded the Pulitzer Prize
for fiction for her young adult novel The
Yearling (1938), the popular and critical
success of which made her one of the most
beloved of American children's authors.
She was born Marjorie Kinnan in Washington,
D.C. After her father died in 1913, she moved
with her mother and brother to Madison,
Wisconsin, where she soon enrolled at the
University of Wisconsin, graduating in 1918 with
a B.A. degree in English. The next year she
married fellow writer Charles A. Rawlings, Jr.,
and moved with him to Rochester, New York,
where she worked as a newspaper writer. In
1928 Rawlings purchased an orange grove in
Cross Creek, Florida, where she and her
husband subsequently moved to restore the
farm to working condition. After divorcing her
husband in 1933, Rawlings stayed in Cross
Creek. She married Norton Sanford Baskin, a
restaurant and hotel operator, in 1941.
Rawlings is best known for The
Yearling, the tale of a boy, his pet
deer, and his sad passage to adulthood.
It was made into a motion picture in 1946
and has been published in more than 20
languages. Rawlings's final novel was
The Sojourner (1953), a tribute to her
grandfather. Her other works include
the novels Golden Apples (1935) and
Mountain Prelude (1947), short stories,
nonfiction articles, and a cookbook
entitled Cross Creek Cookery (1942).

The Yearling is a touching, suspenseful, and realistic story about a boy caught
between love for his pet and responsibility to his family. The novel follows a year
in the life of this playful and sensitive boy-a year filled with adventure and danger,
loss and loneliness. The boy's experiences of sorrow, bitterness, and courage
speak of what it means to grow up in a harsh environment.
 The story of The Yearling takes place in the 1870s in the untamed wilds
of inland Florida. The Baxter family has settled in a clearing of pines
near the 'scrub'—a deeply forested stretch of land enclosed by rivers,
surrounded by marshes, and inhabited by hundreds of wild animals and
birds. Here, isolated from their moonshiner neighbors and the world at
large, the family leads a hand-to-mouth existence, fighting against the
constant threat of bears, panthers, wolves, rattlesnakes, and inclement
weather. Water is scarce and must be carried from a large sinkhole.
Survival depends on hunting, both to provide food and to protect the
crops and livestock.
