The Yearling Chapter 13

By Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

Chapter 13

  • Jody comes to in a bed at Grandma Hutto's.
  • She and Penny are sitting nearby, worried to death.
  • He's hurt pretty badly, but he's mostly upset that helping Oliver, who left him to visit a dumb girl, might cost him his friendship with Fodder-wing.
  • Still, three against one wasn't fair—he had to help.
  • It's time to head back home, so they say goodbye to Oliver, who's recovering in the next bedroom.
  • Oliver asks Jody to send Twink a message for him.
  • Jody is mad, but agrees.
  • When they get to the store again, though, Mr. Boyles tells him she's left town, so he writes Oliver a note to let him know.
