Gone With the Wind is the famous and controversial American novel by American writer, Margaret Mitchell. Here, she draws us into the lives and experiences of myriad colorful characters during (and after) the Civil War. Like William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Mitchell paints a romantic tale of star-crossed lovers, torn apart and brought back together-through the tragedies and comedies of human existence.
