From dust jacket: The qualities of perception, humor, and understanding that made the late Willima T. Polk one of the South's finest editorial writers, and his book Southern Accent a notable addition to the portraiture of the South, found expression also in the short stories he wrote. They range in time from Sir Walter Raleigh to the twentienth century, but most of them deal with yesterday and today in the South. Here are teh small-town lawyers and their clients, white and Negro; liquor-drinking men who enjoy a good fight; hard-working tenant farmers scratching for a living; young men and old trying to make peace with their dreams. Mr. Polk gives the reader a behind-the-scenes look into the seamier side of state politics; a glimpse of an infare that ended in a fight; a ladies' sewing circle the night of the famous ORson Welles broadcast; the story of how a small town dealt with some bad girls; a small-town tableau; the death-bed scene of a hard-drinking sinner; and a suspenseful account of a small boy's advetnures on the night of a riot that failed to come off. The tone of the stories ranges from uproarious to the poignant, but all of them are notable in the warmth and sympathy with which the individiual characters are treated.
