After the Western Reserve
The Ohio Fiction of Jessie Brown Pounds
Edited by Sandra Parker

Popular Press

In her fiction, Jessie Brown Pounds preserved the flavor of Ohio's rural village culture as the nineteenth century drew to a close. This anthology rediscovers Pounds's varied works and reminds modern students that Middle-Western culture included women writers as social critics and mythmakers. Included are short stories, sketches, one undated short story published posthumously in 1921, and Rachael Sylvestre, a first-person historical novel written in 1904.
