An old standby just in time for your summer reading list. The Yearling won the Pulitzer Prize for the Novel in 1939 and was the best-selling novel in America in 1938. This edition has illustrations by N.C. Wyeth, who was a student of Howard Pyle, an illustrator highlighted in a previous Book of the Month - The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood.

N.C. Wyeth illustrations are among my favorites, they are so compelling. A good online collection is the N.C. Wyeth Catalogue Raisonné at the Brandywine River Museum. Use the "Catalogue Search" menu option to find images.

There is a copy of this book available for circulation in the general collection, The Yearling Wilson 5 West, Call #: PS 3535 .A845 Y43 1961.
