Adventures of Captain Simon Suggs (Library Alabama Classics)
- Late of the Tallapoosa Volunteers; Together with Taking the Census and Other Alabama Sketches
Beskrivelse: Originally published in 1845, Adventures of Captain Simon Suggs is a series of sketches written in part to parody some the campaign literature of the era. The character, Simon Suggs, with his motto, 'it is good to be shifty in a new country,' fully incarnates a backwoods version of the national archetypes now know as the confidence man, the grafter, the professional flim-flam artist supremely skilled in the arts by which a man gets along in the world. This classic volume of good humor is set in the rough-and-tumble world of frontier life and politics.
