Archibald Rutledge (1883-1973) was South Carolina’s most prolific writer and the state’s first poet laureate. His nature writings garnered him the prestigious John Burroughs medal. His short story "Claws" was written for publication in an early twentieth-century boy's magazine and has been unseen by readers for a century. A new collectible edition of Claws has been published by USC Press, and proceeds benefit the SCBook Festival.
