Many of Rawlings's other works examine characters, settings, and themes similar to those in The Yearling.

South Moon Under describes a family of Florida moonshiners trying to cope with the uncertainties of daily existence in the scrub. When the Whippoorwill (1940) is a collection of stories about Florida and its people. It includes two prize-winning stories: "Jacob's Ladder," which tells of a girl living in the marsh with her commonlaw trapper husband, and "Gal Young Un," the story of an unhappy man who marries an older widow for her money, and then asks a younger girlfriend to move in with them. Another book, Cross Creek (1942), is a collection of autobiographical sketches about central Florida; it contains interesting background material on how Rawlings's novels and stories were inspired.
