This assignment made me hunt through the vast library of my brain (and it’s scary in the dark!) to remember what I had read that I felt was underrated. Suddenly I remembered Cross Creek by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. This book is still with me today in the sometimes-poignant, sometimes-brash storytelling style of a masterful writer who knew the area she wrote about and loved the history and people of the land. While some of the content is considered racist and condescending, the author’s brilliant depictions of the Florida landscape and the place she carved out for herself in Cross Creek is not to be missed. The animals, the villagers, and the land are all fodder for Ms. Rawling’s descriptive style and it’s worth a read to find out for yourself if you feel the same.
