" Greatest best-seller of our century -
the modern American classic already read by over 20,000,000 people. "
" This magnificent novel has become a classic since its publication in 1936.
It brings the drama of the Civil War and the Reconstruction vividly to life as it tells the story of
Scarlett O'Hara, the spoiled and selfish daughter of a wealthy plantation owner,
who arrives at young womanhood just in time to see the Civil War sweep away
the life for which her upbringing had prepared her.
After the fall of Atlanta, she returns to the plantation and by stubborn shrewdness
saves her home from both Sherman and the carbetbaggers.
But in the process a change comes over Scarlett; she hardens.
She has neared starvation and she vows never to be hungry again.
And in the turmoil of the Reconstruction she fights to make good her vow.
The novel is filled with unforgettable people -
Rhett Butler, blockade runner and charming scoundrel;
Melanie Wilkes, courageous and loyal friend;
Ashley Wilkes, for whom the world died at Appomattox;
Manny, Gerald, and Ellen O'Hara, Belle Watling, Aunt Pittypat, the Tarleton Twins - and the rest.
And, as one reviewer has put it, in sheer readability,
it is surpassed by nothing in American fiction. "
