Product Description

Lyrics from Cottonland & Songs Merry and Sad 2 Volumes

by John Charles McNeill

Idyllic poetry inspired by the countryside of Richmond, North Carolina.

"John Charles McNeill was the second son of Duncan and Euphemia Livingston McNeill, and was born at their country place, near Laurinburg, in Richmond county, N.C. on July 26, 1874. He grew to manhood on his father's farm, living the free, happy, normal life of the country boy. On the surface these early years seem to have been uneventful; they were marked by no unusual experiences or incidents. Work, study, and play seem to tell the story. But the achievements of his maturer years show these early days to have been the determining, formative period of his life. A careful and sympathetic examination of his writings disocers the fact that almost all the dreams, visions, loves, adorations and ecstasies to which he gave such beautiful expression, came to him in the honest work, clean, healthful play and idle roaming about wood and field, i those early and always to him, happy days. He knew and loved all the sights, voices and moods of nature; he was nature's child, and was true through all after years to this Mother of the Mystery."
