Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

I read this book every Christmas vacation from 8th grade through college, and at least a time or two in the thirty years since, but this was the first time in a long time.  Some of the luster has dimmed--it is just too sympathetic to the slave-owning south--but if you have the time, it really is an impressive story.  Ponder this:  GWTW was published 77 years ago, 75 years after the start of the Civil war.
