Tim has had an interesting and unique history including four separate printings. Written in the late 1920s when Stuart was a student at Lincoln Memorial University, it was not published for another decade. Originally intended as a story in Little Man magazine, it was printed as an actual book. Like much of Stuart s early writing, the text is heavily salted with the eastern Kentucky dialect that Stuart heard as a boy. In the 1960s, Stuart wrote of his title character: In his younger days, Tim was one of the greatest storytellers among the Plum Grove Hills, (but) the Plum Grove Hills of today could not produce another Tim. Tim, who didn t take very well to books, would be declared a juvenile delinquent. There would be all sorts of people working to get him educated or to teach him a trade. He would no longer have to kill poor little polecats to sell their pelts for a pittance. There would be some sort of dole for young Tim...He wouldn t be running over to the neighbors with his tall tales. Tim wouldn t be entertaining; he would be sitting in front of his television being entertained. I have preserved Tim because today s world couldn t produce another such character. The old days made him what he was, and the old days are gone.
