Book: Archibald Rutledge's Days Off in Dixie
Synopsis: CLASS Publishing has been entrusted to reprint several books by South Carolina's first poet laureate and beloved chronicler of life in this land in the 20th century. "Days Off in Dixie" features 25 short stories previously published individually in magazines of the day when Archibald Rutledge was teaching in the English Department at Mercersburg Academy in Pennsylvania. Published as a collection in 1921, the tales reveal the young author's love and longing for the world of Hampton Plantation, to which he traveled at every opportunity. This 1920s collection celebrates his sensitive appreciation of nature, knowledge of wild creatures, hunting traditions, and experiences with relatives and friends – none diminished by the passing of a century. Grandson Henry Middleton Rutledge, who penned the new foreword, and great-grandson Donald Middleton Rutledge join us to share memories and launch the effort by Hampton Plantation to renew our appreciation of one of South Carolina’s favorite sons.
