Summary
This first volume of a multivolume set is a collection of stories and parts of novels by twentieth-century Mississippi writers about growing up in the South. Volume II (1986) contains nonfiction on the same subjects and volume III (1987), poetry. A monumental anthology in four volumes collecting fiction, nonfiction, prose, poetry, & drama written by authors from Mississippi, a state that has been called the cradle of storytellers.
