Philip Pendleton Cooke, a typical Virginia gentleman farmer and lawyer, realized a creditable achievement in lyric poetry, in critical essays marked by vigorous good sense, and in the historical tales to which he returned. His work received recognition from leading literary men of his day, and his writing merits attention in any consideration of Southern literature.

Originally published in 1942.
