The years between 1935 and 1941 were the most productive of Still’s writing career. He published 59 poems and 25 short stories in a variety of periodicals plus three books with Viking Press: Hounds on the Mountain (1937), River of Earth (1940) and On Troublesome Creek (1941). Edward Weeks at The Atlantic and Marshall Best at Viking were key to Still’s success. This chapter explores Still’s early career, including his critical move from Hindman to the log house on Dead Mare Branch.
