- Synopsis / Plot
- The time was 1928. The place was Cross Creek, a remote, unremarkable hamlet in a wild, untamed portion of Central Florida.
After 10 years as a frustrated newspaper reporter and unsuccessful author of fiction, Majorie Kinnan Rawlings, a city-born-and-bred Northerner, turned her back on financial security when she took up residence in the unknown and wholly-alien culture of the Florida Cracker. She was ill-equipped for the extreme sub-tropical climate and completely unprepared for her less-than-hospitable, highly-independent backwoods neighbors.
But she was tenacious and spirited and ready to accept the great sacrifices it would take to succeed. And when her literary awakening finally arrived, it was with such honesty and conviction that Majorie Kinnan Rawlings produced a distinguished body of critically-acclaimed, bestselling novels, novellas and short stories that included the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic The Yearling and, of course, her autobiographical memoirs, Cross Creek.
