|Site of the birthplace of novelist John Fox, Jr., Stoney Point, Bourbon County|
|The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come (1903) was probably Fox's most popular novel and was one of the|
first novels published in America to sell a million copies.
|Many of Fox's novels, including much of The Little Shepherd of Kingdom|
Come, are set in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky.
|Fox's passages about nature are particularly descriptive. In the excerpt above, for example, an|
approaching thunderstorm is described as an army getting ready to attack the enemy.
