Rawlings, Marjorie Kinnan: Cross Creek, v.1, 3 Nov 2007

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings was an American author who lived in rural Florida and wrote novels with rural themes and settings.

In 1928, with a small inheritance from her mother, the Rawlingses purchased a 72 acre (290,000 m²) orange grove near Hawthorne, Florida, in a hamlet named Cross Creek for its location between Orange Lake and Lochloosa Lake. She brought the place to international fame through her writing. She was fascinated with the remote wilderness and the lives of Cross Creek residents, her Cracker neighbors, and felt a profound and transforming connection to the region and the land. Wary at first, the local residents soon warmed to her and opened up their lives and experiences to her. Marjorie filled several notebooks with descriptions of the animals, plants, Southern dialect, and recipes and used these descriptions in her writings.

In 1942, Rawlings published Cross Creek, which was an autobiographical account of her relationships with both her neighbors and her beloved Florida hammocks. Again it was chosen by the Book-of-the-Month Club, and it was even released in a special armed forces edition, sent to servicemen during World War II.

Thanks for these. I was born in Florida not too far from where Marjorie once lived. I've always loved her books.
