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.
