Man with a bull-tongue plow by Jesse Stuart( Book )

19 editions published between 1934 and 2011 in English and held by 930 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MAN WITH A BULL-TONGUE PLOW is a landmark in American literature. This memorable collection of sonnets created a sensation when it was first published in 1934. It immediately established Jesse Stuart as a major American writer, and it was the beginning of his distinguished literary career. It is a book with origins in the mountains of Kentucky where young Stuart worked a fifty-acre farm and somehow managed to find time to write down the poems that burned in his brain. Kentucky comes to life in every line of MAN WITH A BULL-TONGUE PLOW: sunlight on green fields, clean winds blowing through corn, the stars above the mountains, and other images of mountain life are lovingly recorded. Dozens of dramas and scores of characters crowd these pages."--Back cover of book
