Summary
<DIV><P>Originally published in 1845, <I>Adventures of Captain Simon Suggs</I> is a series of sketches written in part to parody some the campaign literature of the era. The character, Simon Suggs, with his motto, "it is good to be shifty in a new country," fully incarnates a backwoods version of the national archetypes now know as the confidence man, the grafter, the professional flim-flam artist supremely skilled in the arts by which a man gets along in the world. This classic volume of good humor is set in the rough-and-tumble world of frontier life and politics.</P></DIV>
