    1. I'd give it 3.5 stars.I read half of these short stories and had to return it to the library.All written by different southern women writers.I enjoyed the writing styles.I don't think I'll renew it because I'm not that into reading short stories.

    2. From this anthology, I read "The Ugliest Pilgrim" by Doris Betts. I knew nothing about this story, except that the musical, "Violet"(which I love) was based off of it. I started this story with very high expectations, and I was not disappointed. This story follows the journey of Violet Karl from Spruce Pines, North Carolina to Tulsa, Oklahoma in order to find someone who can heal her. When Violet was thirteen, she was helping her father cop wood, when the blade of the axe came off the handle and [...]

    3. I read this book slowly, a bit and a story at a time over the course of the last year. Out of 21 stories, 7 were excellent, and that's good enough for me. I don't mind skipping over the slower ones, and I don't feel guilty for it, either. Some of my favorites I'd read before, but not for a long time: Zora Neale Hurston's "Isis," Alice Walker's "Everyday Use." I'll never get over Flannery O'Connor's "Good Country People," which doesn't have a single unnecessary word, and Dorothy Allison's "Gospel [...]

    4. An excellent collection of Southern women voicesized by theme with three authors in each section. My favorites were "The Star in the Valley" by Mary Noalles Murfree, the only Tennessean, "The Ugliest Pilgrim" by Doris Betts from North Carolina, "After Moore" by Mary Hood from Georgia, "Shiloh" by Bobbie Ann Mason from Kentucky. My very favorite was Lee Smith's "Tongues of Fire." I had read it previously, but I enjoyed it a second timeI just love the narrator's voice.It made me laugh; it made me [...]

    5. You could tell by the dog-eared pages and curling cover that I read this at least once a year. Some of the short stories are better than others, and I still turn to those when I read this book. A great collection of Southern fiction by women. In my opinion the best stories are:After Moore, by Mary HoodDare's Gift, by Ellen GlasgowFirst Dark, by Elizabeth SpencerEveryday Use, by Alice WalkerTongues of Fire, by Lee Smith

    6. I have read this back in college and now I am re-reading and loving the re-discovery. I know most acclaim is given to Flannery O'Connor for A Good Man but I am a great fan of Good Country People which is in this anthology. And perhaps one of my favorite short stories is Everyday Use by Alice Walker.This book can be found at half for good garage sale prices.

    7. This anthology is absolutely wonderful. I first read it when my friend, Nicole, loaned me her copy, and I loved it. At that time, I had not read very many southern writers—men or women—and this book introduced me to a group of very talented women southern writers. Thanks, Nicole!

    8. An outstanding collection from some of the great women of the south. I love the way the book is organized--it allows for a close examination of some of the connections among the stories and the concerns of these writers.
