About the author (2008)

One of the greatest and most celebrated Southern writers of his day, George Washington Cable (1844-1925) helped lead the local-color movement of the late 1800s with his pioneering use of dialect and his skill in the short-story form. After serving in the Confederate army, he began to write for the New Orleans Picayune. Cable has been called the most important Southern artist working in the late-nineteenth century, as well as the first modern Southern writer. A complete listing of his books published by Pelican is available by request.
