Of Harvest and Home -- A Small Town Georgia Heritage is about family and farming in the Deep South. In 1910, after wandering over Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico for two decades, one prodigal son returns with his wife and five children to South Georgia where his older brother has a thriving pecan nursery business. It is in Baconton that Benjamin Noel (Boo) Brown finally sets roots. His family becomes one with the people in that "garden spot of this section" where there is a unique sense of community and a true love for baseball and pecans. However, home and contentment demand a tremendous price. After less than a year in the small community, Alice Brown dies and leaves her husband to raise their five children alone. That would have been an impossible task for a lesser man, but "Boo" Brown was a man of faith and vision. He believed in himself, in God, and in the innate goodness of mankind. The manifestation of that goodness through new-found friends and neighbors (and much time spent on his knees) reinforced Ben's strength and will as was required over subsequent years. As he provided for their physical needs, he also included music and humor to dispel unavoidable periods of hardship and discontent in his children's journey into adulthood. Throughout those years the children sprouted, budded, and blossomed along with the farm crops. Those prone to change with the weather were gently steered back to their proper mettle by a kind, but firm, hand. Just as harvest time comes for the farmer, God gathers His own. Buds are clipped before they open, and a tiny "Rose of Sharon" loses her mother before she has an opportunity to know her. When the tap root is severed, the least talented of all of Ben's children becomes the family patriarch.

This new edition of Southern Writers assumes its distinguished predecessor's place as the essential reference on literary artists of the American South. Broadly expanded and thoroughly revised, it boasts 604 entries-nearly double the earlier edition's-written by 264 scholars. For every figure major and minor, from the venerable and canonical to the fresh and innovative, a biographical sketch and chronological list of published works provide comprehensive, concise, up-to-date information. Here in one convenient source are the South's novelists and short story writers, poets and dramatists, memoirists and essayists, journalists, scholars, and biographers from the colonial period to the twenty-first century. What constitutes a "southern writer" is always a matter for debate. Editors Joseph M. Flora and Amber Vogel have used a generous definition that turns on having a significant connection to the region, in either a personal or literary sense. New to this volume are younger writers who have emerged in the quarter century since the dictionary's original publication, as well as older talents previously unknown or unacknowledged. For almost every writer found in the previous edition, a new biography has been commissioned. Drawn from the very best minds on southern literature and covering the full spectrum of its practitioners, Southern Writers is an indispensable reference book for anyone intrigued by the subject.

Sitting in Darkness explores how fiction of the Reconstruction and the New South intervenes in debates over black schools, citizen-building, Jim Crow discrimination, and U.S. foreign policy towards its territories and dependencies. The author urges a reexamination not only of the contents and formal innovations of New South literature but also its importance in U.S. literary history. Many rarely studied fiction authors (such as Ellwood Griest, Ellen Ingraham, George Marion McClellan, and Walter Hines Page) receive generous attention here, and well-known figures such as Albion Tourgee, Frances E. W. Harper, Sutton Griggs, George Washington Cable, Mark Twain, Thomas Dixon, Owen Wister, and W. E. B. Du Bois are illuminated in significant new ways. The book's readings seek to synthesize developments in literary and cultural studies, ranging through New Criticism, New Historicism, postcolonial studies, black studies, and "whiteness" studies. This volume posits and answers significant questions. In what ways did the "uplift" projects of Reconstruction-their ideals and their contradictions-affect U.S. colonial policies in the new territories after 1898? How can fiction that treated these historical changes help us understand them? What relevance does this period have for us in the present, during a moment of great literary innovation and strong debate over how well the most powerful country in the world uses its resources?

27 Views of Asheville presents a brightly colored, kaleidoscopic vision of a city lately come to prominence for its metropolitan ambience and cultural background. Here is place full of variety and surprise...So it is absolutely untrue that those who call Asheville "the Paris of the South" are holding a grudge against Paris. They know how it is. These days, Paris should be so lucky. --Fred Chappell

From the Potomac to the Gulf, artists were creating in the South even before it was recognized as a region. The South has contributed to America's cultural heritage with works as diverse as Benjamin Henry Latrobe's architectural plans for the nation's Capitol, the wares of the Newcomb Pottery, and Richard Clague's tonalist Louisiana bayou scenes. This comprehensive volume shows how, through the decades and centuries, the art of the South expanded from mimetic portraiture to sophisticated responses to national and international movements. The essays treat historic and current trends in the visual arts and architecture, major collections and institutions, and biographies of artists themselves. As leading experts on the region's artists and their work, editors Judith H. Bonner and Estill Curtis Pennington frame the volume's contributions with insightful overview essays on the visual arts and architecture in the American South.
