Most of us have seen the movie but how many have read the book?
"Gone with the wind" by Margaret Mitchell was published on this day in 1936.
The book told the story of a woman caught up in the Civil War. It was based on the tales and stories that she heard from her grandparents and other relatives, as well as from Confederate war veterans.
Was the movie better than the book? In this case, the answer is yes but read the book anyway. It will teach you a lot about life in the old South.
Mitchell died in 1949.
