about this book

The best of Faulkner's hunting stories are woven together brilliantly in Big Woods. First published in 1955, the volume includes Faulkner's most famous story, "The Bear" (in its original version), together with "The Old People," "A Bear Hunt," and "Race at Morning." Each story is introduced by a prelude, the final story followed by an epilogue, which serve as musical bridges between them. Together, these pieces create a seamless whole, a work that displays the full eloquence, emotional breadth, and moral complexity of Faulkner's vision.
