When Paul and Claws encounter one another at a perilous creek crossing, Rutledges mastery of outdoors storytelling shines through in every evocative word.The short story Claws was written for publication in an early twentieth-century boys magazine and was first collected in the privately printed Eddy Press edition of Old Plantation Days (c. 1913). Limited to just a few hundred copies, the Eddy Press edition is highly prized by Rutledge collectors and includes five storiesClaws, The Doom of Ravenswood, The Egrets Plumes, The Heart of Regal, and The Oceans Menacenot found in the more widely available 1921 Stokes edition of Old Plantation Days.

A project of the Humanities Council SC benefiting the South Carolina Book Festival, this new edition of Claws is illustrated in handsome charcoal etchings by Southern artist Stephen Chesley. Award-winning outdoors writer and noted Rutledge scholar Jim Casada provides the volumes introduction and retired South Carolina conservation officer Ben McC. Moise offers an afterword.
