Staff Reviews

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell won the Pulitzer Prize, it is the only book of Mitchell’s published during her lifetime and is one of the best selling books of all time.  The writing is sublime.  It reads like a rebel yell for the south, definitely a book with a southern sensibility. Gone with the Wind  seethes with passion and high drama. Atlanta burns, the Civil War rages, Rhett and Scarlet smolder.  They never quite get it right, still as Scarlet says, “tomorrow is another day”. 


— Deon Stonehouse


Since its original publication in 1936, Gone With the Wind—winner of the Pulitzer Prize and one of the bestselling novels of all time—has been heralded by readers everywhere as The Great American Novel.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

Widely considered The Great American Novel, and often remembered for its epic film version, Gone With the Wind explores the depth of human passions with an intensity as bold as its setting in the red hills of Georgia. A superb piece of storytelling, it vividly depicts the drama of the Civil War and Reconstruction.

This is the tale of Scarlett O’Hara, the spoiled, manipulative daughter of a wealthy plantation owner, who arrives at young womanhood just in time to see the Civil War forever change her way of life. A sweeping story of tangled passion and courage, in the pages of Gone With the Wind, Margaret Mitchell brings to life the unforgettable characters that have captured readers for over seventy years.
