Product Overview

1909. White, a journalist, worked for various Kansas newspapers before purchasing the Emporia Gazette, which he edited for the next 49 years. In his fiction, White frequently used the idealized, middle-western small town as a rhetorical device through which to preach reform. A Certain Rich Man begins: The woods were as the Indians had left them, but the boys who were playing there did not realize, until many years afterward, that they had moved in as the Indians moved out. Perhaps, if these boys had known that they were the first white boys to use the Indians's playgrounds, the realization might have added zest to the make-believe of their games; but probably boys between seven and fourteen, when they play at all, play with their fancies strained, and very likely these little boys, keeping their stick-horse livery-stable in a wild-grape arbor in the thicket, needed no verisimilitude.
