Rhett Butler's Peoplefulfills the dreams of those whose imaginations have been indelibly marked by America's greatest novel, Gone With the Wind. Here you'll meet Rhett as a boy, a free spirit who loved the marshes and tidewaters of the Low Country, and learn of the ruthlessness of Rhett's father, whose desire for control resulted in the unspeakable. Through Rhett's eyes, you'll encounter those who shaped him in other ways: the Overseer's daughter, Belle Watling; Rosemary, Rhett's brave and determined sister; Tunis Bonneau, the son of freed slaves who understood the young Rhett like no one else; and Jack Ravanel, whose name became inextricably linked to heartbreak. And then there's Katie Scarlett O?Hara herself ? the headstrong, passionate woman whose life is inextricably entwined with Rhett's: more like him than she cares to admit; more in love with him than either of them will ever know . . .

A good read especially if you have read Gone with the Wind. If I hadn't I am not sure I would have finished it, because it wasn't as involving as GWTW, perhaps because it was mostly from Rhett's point of view.

Terrific. Nobody can spin a story as well as McCaig, unless he has a twin. Well done Don, and Thank You.

If you loved Gone with the wind, this would be a good read for you! An authorized version of the Rhett and Scarlett story based on his side of it. The author has written other stories about the civil war (Canaan, Jacob's ladder) and its well worth a read.

... Rhett Butler had slipped into that mood where the deepest affections are colored by sorrow and love's losses seem the greater part of love.
