An anniversary edition of Margaret Mitchell's timeless classic.
Published in 1936, GONE WITH THE WIND sold 50,000 copies on its first day, and two million after a year. Even though it is 1,037 pages long, readers all over the world snatched up the book; by 1937 it was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and the movie rights had been sold to David O. Selznick. Mitchell prided herself on the historical accuracy of her work, and--despite its melodramatic plot and somewhat two-dimensional supporting characters--GONE WITH THE WIND is a sweeping account of how the Civil War tore apart an entire way of life, and Scarlett O'Hara is one of the most enduring characters in American fiction.
