Believe it or not, I found this book in a dumpster with several other discarded books. The other books I have found info about authors and the books themselves, but this one is giving me trouble. I can't seem to find anything about it. I thought it might be a cool find because the only copyright I could find was 1899. any information on it would be helpful.

    All you need to do is use google: Thomas Nelson Page, I found that the Encyclopedia of Virginia had the best info.

    Page, Thomas Nelson 1853-1922, Writer. Thomas Nelson Page, author of short stories, novels, essays, and poetry, is best known for his role as literary spokesman for the glories of the Old South. Born in 1853 and only 11 years old when the Civil War ended, Page, writing in the plantation genre of John Pendleton Kennedy and others, created of the antebellum South a mythical, would-be land of noble gentlemen and ladies, of contented slaves, a society ordered by the laws of chivalry.
