Jesse Stuart

Jesse Hilton Stuart (August 8, 1907 - February 17, 1984) was an American writer who achieved prominence in the short story, poetry, and novels. Born and raised in Greenup County, Kentucky, Stuart relied heavily on the rural locale of Northeastern Kentucky (and, perhaps to some degree, Southeastern Ohio, mainly around the Portsmouth area) for his writings. Indeed, he said that most of his stories were elaborations of true incidents that he observed or had heard about. He died at Jo-Lin nursing home in Ironton, Ohio, which is near his boyhood home. His work embodies the local color movement where dialogue and plots are designed to give a stereotypical view of a region
