Gone with the Wind is a novel written by Margaret Mitchell, and first published in 1936.
The story is set in the American Civil War, and it tells us the story of Scarlet o' Hara, the very beautiful and very spoiled daughter of a well to do plantation owner.
The book was a bestseller the year it was published and it was published again in 1937.
The novel is a Southern plantation fiction and is written from the view of the slaveholder.
It has become the reference point for other writers about the South, both for blacks and whites.
The film starred the unforgettable Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh.
The film has had lots said about it, and Slavery, I won't go into all that, lets just say  it was and still is a magnificent film and one that will be enjoyed over and over again by future generations.
