In contrast to the quiet, peaceful lives of the Baxters, their nearest neighbors, the Forresters, are loud, argumentative, and prone to being troublemakers. Jody finds their zest for life and their free and easy ways appealing. But relations between the Baxters and the Forresters are strained when Penny and Jody intervene in a fight between Lem Forrester and Oliver Hutto, a friend of the family. When the Baxters' hogs are missing, Penny and Jody venture into the scrub to search for them, suspecting that the Forresters are responsible. On the hunt Penny is bitten by a rattlesnake and nearly dies. While he is recovering from the snake bite, Penny allows Jody to take in a motherless fawn and raise it as a pet. Jody names the fawn Flag, and the deer becomes Jody's constant companion. When reality strikes, and they find themselves near the edge, Jody must make decisions that will take him through the passage from boyhood to manhood.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, 1938.

I have really enjoyed using these. I am a Grandma who is helping my daughter homeschool her children in English using Skype. We meet each week to discuss novels, essays and vocabulary. The study guides are useful
Great product. I use it in class and it spurns good discussion.
Love how it includes teachings on literary elements.
