"No fictionist has written more strikingly of the modern South's problems."
—Chicago Sunday Tribune
This collection of ninety-six stories was first published in 1953 and presents the best of Erskine Caldwell’s short fiction from his most productive period of work. Included is “Crown-Fire,” which James Dickey praised as “the best story in the language,” and such personal favorites of Caldwell as “Country Full of Swedes,” “The Windfall,” “Horse Thief,” “Yellow Girl,” and “Kneel to the Rising Sun.”
