Adventures of Captain Simon Suggs, late of the Tallapoosa Volunteers by Johnson Jones Hooper( Book )

67 editions published between 1843 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,018 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV> Originally published in 1845, Adventures of Captain Simon Suggs is a series of sketches written in part to parody some the campaign literature of the era. The character, Simon Suggs, with his motto, "it is good to be shifty in a new country," fully incarnates a backwoods version of the national archetypes now know as the confidence man, the grafter, the professional flim-flam artist supremely skilled in the arts by which a man gets along in the world. This classic volume of good humor is set in the rough-and-tumble world of frontier life and politics. </DIV>
