Taps For Private Tussie by Jesse Stuart

Taps for Private Tussie remains Jesse Stuart's most well-known novel. Soldier Kim Tussie's death brings his widow, Vittie, $10,000 in insurance money. Innocent young Sid Tussie describes what happens when a poor mountain clan comes into sudden wealth and their antics become a tale of high comedy, as forty-six Tussies pack themselves into their new "mansion" and proceed to live the good life-until something unexpected ended it all.



New York: E.P. Dutton, 1943
