Since 1926, Pelican Publishing Company has been committed to publishing books of quality and permanence that enrich the lives of those who read them.
The South has long been home to unique and enduring tales. Too often, these fables are obscured by the region’s colorful past. It is rare that an author touches on such a tender history and brings forth a collection so rewarding and poignant. James Everett Kibler has captured the essence of Southern writing in this remarkably touching anthology of fables.
While Christmas stories are traditionally sweet, warm, and fuzzy, not every holiday memory generates a feeling of ease, merriment, and plenty. Penned by the capable hands of twelve of the best writers in the South, the stories in this collection challenge, illuminate, and provoke strong feelings as they examine Christmas from a variety of unexpected angles.

“Dummy” is big. He is black. He doesn’t speak. To everybody in Linville, Mississippi, he’s a familiar sight, pulling his wagonload of laundry for his mother. What people remember most about him and his family is the way his father died after being accused of bothering a white woman, and Jubal’s own act of violence while working the levee after the flood of 1927. Hardcover.
Written in the loose style of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales or Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio, Memory’s Keep is a nostalgic and bittersweet flashback, revealing the formative experiences of Trig Trigsely, the unforgettable curmudgeon at the center of Walking Toward Home, Kibler’s first novel in his Clay Bank County trilogy.
Acutely aware of lifetimes of missed opportunities and mistakes, the characters in James Everett Kibler’s new novel unconsciously hold on to a persistent hope. Walking Toward Home presents snapshots of small-town people as they continue to care for the living while mourning the dead in ways that are not uniquely Southern, but universal in purpose. The magnetism of the local country store attracts a diverse group of neighbors who tell stories and impart wisdom that was earned the hard way. Hardcover.
