Since its inception in the early 1830s, southern frontier humor (also known as the humor of the Old Southwest) has had enduring appeal.

First the book shows the importance of Henry Junius Nott, a writer virtually unknown and forgotten who mined many of the principal subjects, themes, tropes, and character types associate.
