For many years Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings was one of leading citizens of the tiny, remote Florida Hamlet of Cross Creek. Her intimate and vivid narrative of the people, scenery, and wild-life of the Florida back- country has all the humor and the boundless human appeal of her Pulitzer prize- winning novel.
Her genius for character portrayal and description is unequalled, so that each character stands out recognizably and each event becomes the nucleus of a story. Some of the episodes are hilariously funny and some are hauntingly tragic, and all of them display her deep-rooted love of the earth.
