Excerpt from Saturday Night Sketches: Stories of Old Wiregrass Georgia

Why the Book? - To tell posterity something of a people who have passed. To put in form more permanent than tradition something of those hardy pioneers who initiated the development of a wilderness into a land of fertility and plenty. Something of how they lived and loved and died; of the manners and customs of a people primitive, industrious, and God-fearing. Only a few are left who knew them - soon they, too, will be gone. It was not with an object so comprehensive that the sketches began. The first were written, as so many things are written, without objective - with only the feeling of a story to tell, that newspaper men so well know - but as they grew in number and scope, the idea of publishing them in book form was first suggested by others who likewise knew the generation of whom they told, and these suggestions grew until a sense of duty to those who are gone as well as to the literature of a people culminated in the volume, which is submitted with temerity, because no one can realize more keenly than the author its shortcomings.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Saturday Night Sketches: Stories of Old Wiregrass Georgia The great mountain peaks and the broad roll ing plains do not alone make all the earth. The little foot-hills and valleys and vales form an essential part of the globe. The sayings and deeds of great men alone are not all of history. The humbler folk often speak and do things which are the heart and center of real world events. As the little tributaries rising out of the neglect ed and unknown nooks and corners of the land ?ow into and make up the mighty river, so out of the obscure places of earth often come those tiny rivulets of life that give volume, force, and majesty to the deep and broad stream of human history.
