Our Fathers' Fields
A Southern Story
By (author) James E. Kibler
Our Fathers' Fields by James E. Kibler
Book DescriptionWinner of the 1999 Fellowship of Southern Writers Award for Nonfiction Here, traveler, scholar, poet, take your stand When all those rooms and passages are gone. William Butler Yeats, Coole Park, 1929 When traveler, scholar, and poet James Everett Kibler purchased a dilapidated South Carolina plantation in 1989, he had no idea that the rehabilitation of the property would include the unearthing of a remarkable American saga about Southern land and the people who lived on it. Part epic, part history, part memoir, this superb tale of the Hardy family is richly detailed, providing the reader with a glimpse of agrarian life as it was for two hundred years along the hilly, fertile lands of the Tyger River. Recounting his own efforts to restore the plantationís former glory, Kibler concludes that only by knowing a place truly well can we guard against its abuse. Our Fathersí Fields is an especially vivid portrayal seen from the inside of the antebellum South, the Civil War, and life after the war. It contains a compelling collection of Civil War letters. While Kibler strengthens his own ties with the county of his birth, the Hardy family becomes his family, as they may well prove to be the readerís, with an ending that is yet to be.
