Jesse Stuart was the second youngest of that group (William Saroyan was one year younger). The theme of education appears often in Stuart's books. He described the role that teaching played in his life in The Thread that Runs So True (1949), though he changed the names of places and people. He first taught school in rural Kentucky at the age of 16 at Cane Creek Elementary School, which became Lonesome Valley in his book. The Thread that Runs So True (1949) has become a classic of American education. Ruel Foster noted in 1968 that the book had good sales in its first year.

Jesse Stuart, the author of the story, used short sentences to create tension, intrigue and fear in the readers mind. As I mentioned before the closer is the peak of the conflict the direr and more gruesome is the atmosphere. In this episode the mood is that of brutal and animosity. Pain, viciously, poised. The third episode depict the true essence of life through the boy& penitence for the death of the snake. This episode bring us to the character& thoughts about what had happened.

This book is an absolutely delightful collection of short stories that are funny, sad and touching. It is one of the most enjoyable books I have ever read. I recommend first reading The Thread That Runs So True as it gives insight into the author, his life and the people he holds so dear. I have recommended these books to everyone I know.

It arrived in perfect order with it showing normal age of paper but the book looks as if it was never read. I've started reading it and have now felt as if I was reading it for the first time. Thank you so much.
