Buy The Book
Oh, how I love a good story of living off the land, struggling with the crops, and
appreciating a good yardage of animal hide. In fact, in
celebration of this book and on this very day, I was out feeding
newborn lambs, picking asparagus, collecting fresh brown eggs, and
sitting along side the river under the big sky (and I'm a city gal).
This book was written by one of
the finest and scored a Pulitzer Prize for its contribution to great
American literature. Although it is a book about a growing
boy* and his pet (the yearling), I mostly enjoyed it for the backwoods
dialect, crazy neighbors, scenic poetry, and bear hunting escapades
(not to mention the story about how Uncle Miles lost his breaches in
Edible insight from The
Yearling: Ma made a pilau of the squirrels for supper. "Why the meat's so tender, "
[Pa] said, "you could kiss it off the bones."
ps. I have not seen the
movie, but please feel free to review the movie below!
totally gotten over the fact the boy's name is Jody.
