The Yearling - Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

I do not understand how anyone can live without some small place of enchantment to turn to. 

 

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

 

American writer Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (born August 8, 1896) initially set out to become a romance writer, but she instead found unexpected success with a story about a young boy and his pet deer. In addition to topping best seller lists for twenty-three weeks the year it was released, The Yearling went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
