‘A literary masterpiece for all ages . . . a tale of growing up, of love and laughter, of tragedy and loss and grief – a tale that is so compelling that it turns the page for you: The Yearling leaves you tearful, breathless, exhilarated’ MICHAEL MORPURGO

‘An unsentimental, stone-cold classic that should be spoken of in the same breath – and read as religiously – as Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird

‘A genuine classic . . . I was stunned to awe by The Yearling‘s beauty and strength’ LAUREN GROFF

In the remote, unforgiving landscape of central Florida, Ezra ‘Penny’ Baxter, his wife Ora and their son Jody carve out a precarious existence. Only ever a failed crop away from disaster, life in the Big Scrub is one of lurking danger, wild beauty and the thrill of the hunt.

Jody’s world is transformed when he rescues a starving fawn, who becomes his constant companion. But their bond is threatened when the yearling endangers the family’s survival – and Jody is forced to make a terrible choice that will change him forever.

Winner of the 1939 Pulitzer Prize and an instant bestseller, The Yearling is a moving and richly evocative classic for readers of all ages.
