In his short stories and novels, William Faulkner brings to life the inhabitants of Yoknapatawpha County. Will any of these Mississippians seem like they belong in the North Country? We will read some short stories to find out.

Joyce Monroe is a retired superintendent of schools who taught courses in American literature for many years at Canton Central High School.
