Uncle Abner, created by Melville Davisson Post, is a mighty figure. He solved the mysteries that confronted him in a backwoods Virginia community, of which he was squire, in the first years of the nineteenth century before the infant American nation had any proper police system. He had two great attributes for his self-imposed task: a profound knowledge and love of the Bible, and keen observation of human actions. Post modelled the figure of Uncle Abner on Abraham Lincoln.
These stories were originally published between 1913 and 1918.
