Prequel to 'Gone With the Wind' Out on Tuesday
Do wonder what made legendary 'Gone With the Wind' character Rhett Butler tick? If you answered "yes" you may want to check out a new book that will hit stores on Tuesday. 'Rhett Butler's People' is the first authorized 'Gone With the Wind' book since 1991's 'Scarlett'. While 'Scarlett' was universally panned by critics, the new book is getting mixed reviews.
'Rhett Butler's People' is a look at the life of Butler 12 years before 'Gone With the Wind'. It spans until after he splits from Scarlett O'Hara to give you a long span of his life.
The book is written by Donald McCraig and if it sells enough copies look for a movie rendition in the not so distant future.
