RARA-AVIS: Caldwell

From: abc@wt.net

I'd go with TOBACCO ROAD if only because it's the one that started the whole "backwoods" trend. I did an article once for THE JOURNAL OF POPULAR CULTURE. I called it "See What the Boys in the Backwoods Will Have," and it was all about the kind of books that followed TOBACCO ROAD. Harry Whittington wrote a lot of those, but my favorites are the ones in the "Cabin Road" series by John Faulkner (all Gold Medals).
