Gone With the Wind
Gone With the Wind was voted by Ohio County Public Library patrons as Wheeling's #1 best-loved novel in The Great American Read.
The definitive story of love and war in the South, Gone with the Wind won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1947. Scarlett O’Hara, the spoiled, manipulative daughter of a wealthy plantation owner, 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, author Margaret Mitchell explores the depth of human passions with an intensity as bold as its setting in the red hills of Georgia and brings to life unforgettable characters that have captured readers for more than eighty years.
