Yesterday in the hills by Floyd C Watkins( Book )

12 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in English and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yesterday in the Hills recalls life in North Georgia from the 1890s until World War II and records vanished and vanishing folkways of the region. Here is folklore at its best--seen from the inside and mediated through the heart. Yesterday in the Hills is built upon the bedrock of experience and memory, but its sharply drawn characters and beautifully proportioned narrative transcend reminiscence and realistically depict hill-country life as it once was.?Authentic, flavorful chapters about old-time hill people of North Georgia, their backbreaking field work, their song and play, their courtship, their neighborly exchange of help with the chores, their homemade remedies for illness and homemade practically everything else, their humor and their individuality.????????Publishers Weekly?A gentle, humorous personal recollection of real people and the way they lived and worked.????????Celestine Sibley
Talking about William Faulkner : interviews with Jimmy Faulkner and others by Jim Faulkner( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1970s and 1980s, Sally Wolff and Floyd C. Watkins, both of Emory University, took students of southern literature to Lafayette County, Mississippi, to explore the region where William Faulkner lived. They visited Faulkner's home, Rowan Oak, in Oxford, Mississippi; trekked around the countryside; and met people who were the prototypes for some of his characters. During these excursions, they discovered firsthand how profoundly Faulkner's family, community, and region imprinted themselves on his imagination and then both shaped and enriched his work. Their primary guide was Jimmy Faulkner, who was once described by his famous uncle as "the only person who likes me for what I am." Like his uncle, Jimmy is a born storyteller, and his recollections provide fascinating, often intimate details about Faulkner as author, friend and drinking buddy, member of the unusual Faulkner clan, and resident of the model for what may be the most famous county in American literature

11 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking a new approach to the study of Robert Penn Warren's imposing and still growing poetic canon, Floyd C. Watkins has found in the poems what he describes as a ""poetic autobiography"" unparalleled in American letters. Drawing on interviews with Warren, members of his family, and contemporaries from his hometown, but keeping the poetry itself constantly at the center of his vision, Watkins shows how the poetry has grown from the experience of the boy and man and from his contemplation of his family's and his country's history. He traces through the poems a family chronicle, moving from the
