Old Pines: And Other Stories
This is the first collection in book form of a number of Boyd's short stories. These stories are as particularly southern as their subject, the small southern community. They emphasize dialogue rather than description and illustrate the economy of the skilled writer who discards false ornaments of style.
Originally published in 1952.
