The Yearling

by Marjorie Rawlings
  • Three stars
    Give it a try, if you have the time.
    A boy named Jody Baxter adopts a fawn and raises it after having to kill its mother to cure his father's snake bite. He names the fawn Flag at his friend Fodder-Wing's suggestion because the fawn's little, white tail flies in the air like a flag. I wish the excitement started sooner, but it is an enjoyable read once the adventure begins.
