Gone With The Wind - Margaret Mitchell - 1964 Book Club Edition
SCARLETT O'HARA WAS NOT BEAUTIFUL, BUT MEN SELDOM REALIZED IT WHEN CAUGHT BY HER CHARM...
And so begins the story of one of the most dynamic heroines in all of 20th-century literature. Originally published in 1936, Gone With the Wind sold over 1 million copies in its first year of release and more than 75,000 per year since then. Even though it's had its critics throughout its 90 years of life, one thing that is consistently lauded is the novel's highly researched history and Scarlett's determination to create an independent life for herself.
The winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1937, Gone With the Wind has been published in 40 languages and 50 different countries yet continues to spike controversy for its depiction of slavery, women's rights, and survival mentality during wartime. It has been a banned book during the 1940s, the 1970s, and also in some communities in the 2020s.
For readers who are new to GWTW, it will capture your interest from page one with the story of Scarlett O'Hara as she ages from 16 to 28 in the American South before, during and after the Civil War. For seasoned fans who know the story well, you'll love this 1964 edition with its beautiful, pictorial dust jacket illustrating significant scenes from the novel.
