A Story of Backwoods Life in Indiana

Set in Flat Creek, Indiana during the middle of the 19th-century, the story follows the experiences of the new schoolteacher, Ralph Hartsook. The novel is based on experiences of the author’s brother, George Cary Eggleston, who had been a schoolteacher in rural Indiana. The novel is credited for its realistic depictions of rural life and use of local dialect.

First published in 1871, this edition is derived from the original book with 29 black & white illustrations by Frank Beard. Also included are 29 etymological footnotes. As always, this edition is complete and unabridged.
