Серия: "-"

1910. The book begins: The days of that April had been days of mist and rain. Sometimes, for hours, there would come a miracle of blue sky, white cloud, and yellow light, but always between dark and dark the rain would fall and the mist creep up the mountains and steam from the tops-only to roll together from either range, drip back into the valleys, and lift, straightway, as mist again. So that, all the while Nature was trying to give lustierlife to every living thing in the lowland Bluegrass, all the while a gaunt skeleton was stalking down the Cumberland-tapping with fleshless knuckles, now at some unlovely cottage of faded white and green, and now at a log cabin, stark and gray.

John Fox, Jr.

John Fox, Jr. (December 16, 1862 - July 8, 1919) was an American journalist, novelist, and short story writer.

Biography

Born in Stony Point, Kentucky to John William Fox, Sr., and Minerva Worth Carr, Fox studied English at Harvard University. He graduated in 1883 before becoming a reporter in New York City. After working for both "New York Times" and the "New York Sun", he published a successful serialization of his first novel, "A Mountain Europa", in "Century" magazine in 1892. Two moderately successful short story collections followed, as well as his first conventional novel, "The Kentuckians" in 1898. Fox gained a following as a war correspondent, working for "Harper's Weekly" in Cuba during the Spanish-American War of 1898, where he served with the "Rough Riders." Six years later he traveled to Asia to report on the Russo-Japanese War for "Scribner's" magazine.

Though he occasionally wrote for periodicals, after 1904, Fox dedicated much of his attention to fiction. "The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come" (published in 1903) and "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine" (published in 1908) are arguably his most well known and successful works, entering the "New York Times" top ten list of bestselling novels for 1903, 1904, 1908, and 1909 respectively. Many of his works reflected the naturalist style, his childhood in Kentucky's Bluegrass region, and his life among the coal miners of Big Stone Gap, Virginia. Many of his novels were historical romances or period dramas set in that region.

John Fox, Jr. died in 1919 of pneumonia in Big Stone Gap, Virginia and was buried in the family plot in Paris, Kentucky. His marriage to Austrian opera singer Fritzi Scheff in 1908 lasted just over four years. He had no children.
