Rawlings, Marjorie Kinnan, 1896-1953. Summary: A young boy living in the Florida. The earth was pale green, the air itself was all but visible, golden with the rain-washed sunlight, and all the trees and grass and bushes glittered, varnished with the rain-drops. A spring of delight boiled up within him as irresistibly as the spring of the branch. He lifted his arms and held them straight from his shoulders like a water-turkey’s wings.

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (August 8, 1896 – December 14, 1953) was an American author who lived in rural Florida and wrote novels with rural themes and settings. Her best known work, The Yearling, about a boy who adopts an orphaned fawn, won a Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1939 and was later made into a movie of the same name. The book was written long before the concept of young adult fiction, but is now commonly included in teen-reading lists.

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings was a pioneer environmentalist who reacted against the growing urbanization . That same year, she and her husband were divorced. One of her least well received books, Golden Apples, came out in 1935.

I was very happy with this copy that I bought for my father. For it's age, it was in great condition. My 87 year old father was thrilled and read it right away.

Rawlings didnt care for GOLDEN APPLES, she called it 'Interesting trash, not literature.' But I think it's her best writing.

It's not a happy, hopeful book. It's full of despair and sadness. It begins at the funeral of Luke and Allie Brinley's parents, and the kids are abandoned by virtually everyone, to make it on their own.

I had been under the impression that the book is a gothic romance, but it isnt. What it is is a relentless struggle for all of the characters.

I'm surprised it's out of print.
