The Yearling Chapter 30

By Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

Chapter 30

  • March is beautiful, and Penny and Jody spend days planting crops, with Flag frolicking around them.
  • Penny is working extra hard, to make up for being stuck in bed so long with his rheumatism.
  • One day he tries to pull an old tree stump out of the ground—and keels over in agony. Ya think?
  • Jody has to help him home, where Ma goes into fits, blaming him for pushing himself too hard. Nice.
  • He thinks he just strained himself, and that he'll be fine soon. We'll see.
