Kneel to the Rising Sun

First edition (publ. Viking Press)

Kneel to the Rising Sun is a collection of short stories by Erskine Caldwell first published in 1935. The seventeen stories, only a few pages each, all deal with various tragedies occurring in the early twentieth century American South, chiefly caused by poverty or racism. Caldwell is most well known for his novels, such as Tobacco Road, however Kneel to the Rising Sun is held in high acclaim by his critics.
