Published more than thirty years ago, some of the material in this handbook for Jesse Stuart enthusiasts is out-of-date, but much is still very pertinent. I think the greatest strength is the writing I did to familiarize the reader with how the book business and book selling works. True, back then, print-on-demand didn't exist, but most of what I wrote about first editions, etc., still holds. Of course the focus of the book is Kentucky's most popular writer of the middle of the 20th Century. He led a fascinating and inspiring life, and this part of the book is certainly worth-while.
