Notes Concerning the Author
James E. Kibler is a novelist, poet, retired professor English at the University of Georgia, and the foremost William Gilmore Simms scholar.
In 1989 Dr. Kibler bought a dilapidated plantation in his native Newberry County, South Carolina, and began restoring the house, gardens, and natural flora. In the process he began to discover the history of the place and the Hardy family who had settled it in 1786. The result was Our Fathers’ Fields, a beautiful account of a Southern place and two hundred years of agrarian life on the place. Shelby Foote wrote that this classic “brings us home to who we are by showing us where we came from.”
