About this title

Synopsis:

Soldier Kim Tussie's death brings his widow, Aunt Vittie, $10,000 in insurance money, which Grandpa and Grandma promptly help her spend. Through the eyes of innocent young Sid Tussie, we see what happens when a poor mountain clan comes into sudden wealth.

Here is high comedy, as forty-six Tussies pack themselves into their new "mansion" and proceed to live the good life.

From the Publisher:

Taps for Private Tussie won the Thomas Jefferson Southern Award in 1943, and was a Book-of-the-Month Club selection that year, also. This tale about the Tussie family is a brimming mountain spring of hilarious fun and folklife. Yet never was a book read more eagerly to see what in the world will happen next.

This tale is not just a story of poor white Southern mountaineers on relief. There is something universal about it. It reveals an attitude towards human life and its problems, found in people, places, and times that have no connection with Southern mountaineers.
