Publisher's Summary

Fully authorized by the Margaret Mitchell estate, Rhett Butler's People is the astonishing and long-awaited novel that parallels the Great American Novel, Gone with the Wind.

Twelve years in the making, the publication of Rhett Butler's People marks a major and historic cultural event. Through the storytelling mastery of award-winning writer Donald McCaig, the life and times of the dashing Rhett Butler unfolds.

Through Rhett's eyes we meet the people who shaped his larger than life personality as it sprang from Margaret Mitchell: Langston Butler, Rhett's unyielding father; Rosemary his steadfast sister; Tunis Bonneau, Rhett's best friend and a onetime slave; Belle Watling, the woman for whom Rhett cared long before he met Scarlett O'Hara at Twelve Oaks Plantation, on the fateful eve of the Civil War.

Of course there is Scarlett. Katie Scarlett O'Hara, the headstrong, passionate woman whose life is inextricably entwined with Rhett's: more like him than she cares to admit; more in love with him than she'll ever know.

Brought to vivid and authentic life by the hand of a master, Rhett Butler's People fulfills the dreams of those whose imaginations have been indelibly marked by Gone with the Wind.

DRAGS ON FOREVER

Overall, a pretty miserable excuse for a sequel.
A waste of time.
Drags on ENDLESSLY.

Male narrator very distracting

with such an iconic story as GWTW there needed to be a female narrator and Male. Rhett doesn't sound southern at all he sounds like he's a 300lb prize fighter and mamy doesn't even sound Black let alone southern. VERY DISAPPOINTED Seemed no effort was taken to sound like the original characters at all. I'd love to listen again with new narrators. Some of the skipping back and forth onto stories we have never heard of is also very confusing.

very good!

this was a great story that gave insights to untold parts of Gone with the Wind. it has a different ending than Scarlet, the original Gone with the Wind sequel. Both are good stories that just take a different direction. I loved this book!
