Born Oct. 7, 1849, Greenfield, IN., U.S. — died July 22, 1916, Indianapolis, IN.
U.S. Poet. He came into touch with the populace of rural Indiana through his early work experiences. His verse contributions to the Indianapolis Daily Journal, written in Hoosier dialect ostensibly by a farmer, established his reputation as "the poet of the common people." His best-known poems include "When the Frost Is on the Punkin" and "The Raggedy Man." Among his many collections are The Old Swimmin' Hole (1883), Pipes o' Pan at Zekesbury (1888), and Home Folks (1900).
Blue cloth binding gold gilt lettering in good to fair condition.
No tears, or missing pages, binding is sound, corners and top edge cover is scuffed, with normal wear.
Not a library copy, slight moisture damage on top of pages.
Very nice addition to a collector of children's books or poetry.
I myself remember alot of these sweet poems from my childhood.http://twosisterscottage.etsy.com
