'Tomorrow, I'll think of some way to get him back. After all, tomorrow is another day.' Set against the dramatic backdrop of the American Civil War, Margaret Mitchell's magnificent historical epic is an unforgettable tale of love and loss, of a nation mortally divided and a people forever changed. Above all, it is the story of beautiful, ruthless Scarlett O'Hara and the dashing soldier of fortune Rhett Butler. Widely considered the Great American Novel, and often remembered for its epic film version starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, Gone with the Wind is a superb piece of storytelling. It vividly depicts the drama of the Civil War and Reconstruction and is a sweeping story of tangled passion and courage. Since its first publication in 1936, Gone with the Wind has endured as one of the bestselling novels of all time, in spite of its problematic subject matter. This edition of the classic love story features an introductory essay offering a context to the novel, by critically acclaimed, Sunday Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory.
William Franklin Draper. Very Good+ 8vo-over 7¾-9¾" tall. 1st Printing. First printing of this Anniversary edition. Excepting a private owner bookplate on front pastedown, this is a fine copy in original grey cloth in original grey laminated board slipcase as issued. Slip case has slight edge wear to some corners. No dust jacket, presumably as issued for this 1975 Anniversary edition. Contains an introduction especially written for this edition by James A. Michener. Although unstated, this is apparently the 40th Anniversary edition. Research indicates there were additional anniversary eds for other years, but this seems to be the only one with the Michener introduction.
This book is a treasure. It is a revealing account of the Civil War era through the eyes of a Southerner. A must read!

A Classic That Holds Up
You can't go wrong with "Gone With the Wind!" If you've been putting it off, pick it up, and give yourself a treat.

Still a treat!
I hadn't read Gone with the Wind in at least 20 years. I first read it as a teenager, and reread it yearly for many years.
It is still a compelling story, with interesting characters. The racism seemed more blatant this time around, so I had to put that aside.
Scarlett O'Hara is a fictional icon, and she deserves to be. She is willful and stubborn, and has a habit of putting worrying about things off until tomorrow.
I recommend this book both as a new book to people who haven't read it, and as a re-read for people who haven't read it in a long time.
