  • I just finished this book. It is powerful, deeply moving, beautifully written. It immersed me completely in the world of Rawlings' characters, the simple farmers, trappers, hunters and bootleggers who lived in the Florida scrub early in the Twentieth Century, struggling against the wild to provide for themselves and their children. I did not find it as mystical or wise as "The Sojourner" or "The Yearling," perhaps because both those novels had more compelling heroes. But this story --- written before those later novels --- provides a great masterly overview of a family through three generations, and I came to care as much about these people I had about Jody of "The Yearling" or Ase, the quiet philosophical hero of "The Sojourner." There is something noble and grand about this novel. It suggests a truly great ambition on the part of the author, not simply to chronicle the harsh and beautiful world of particular people, but to extract from the tale the most profound lessons that the earth has to teach. And "South Moon Under" can be seen as a step on the way to the deeper concerns of Rawlings' later books. There is great care here, great restraint, as always, with Rawlings --- who lets her characters talk in their compelling and often savagely poetic vernacular. And the physical descriptions of the people, the trees, the animals, the river, the fires that burn the scrub, and the rains that descend on it --- are priceless. I really loved this book. It filled me to the brim with fresh images, fresh considerations, and fresh ideas. It left me with a feeling of sadness, but a kind of muted joy as well.

  • SO disappointed that this edition is published in teeny tiny font that is very uncomfortable to read. I regret I bought it as it is unreadable for me.

  • Love this book. Captures the Florida Cracker and the culture of that time.

  • Both my husband and myself really enjoyed this book. It is a bit hard to get into, but once you do it ix special. You really enjoy the people--they handle their own problems in their own way. Certainlyi a different way of life.

  • I couldn't read even w my seldom needed reading glasses.
    Don't understand how this could get published.
    I hope they saved a tree. And ink. Shame on them.

  • Love all of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings books! I read Cross Creek and was hooked.

  • Can't believe how small the type is! I will need to squint to read this or use my magnifying glass. You may want to shop around for a different edition or something

  • ok but slow
