  Come Gentle Spring  
  Come Gentle Spring brings together twenty short stories, taking his readers on a “quiet tour of the land and people” that Jesse Stuart knows so well. There are stories about the Powderjay’s, even concerning the Civil War’s effect on the clan, and hunting tales, animals stories—even one about a red hen that crows. The dust jack claims that “you will laugh, cry, and become totally involved with the characters Jesse Stuart depicts with such tenderness.”
