In a series of sketches, regionalist writers such as Alice Cary, Sarah Orne Jewett, Grace King, and Sui Sin Far critique the approach to regional subjects characteristic of local color and create a countertradition of American writing whose narrator serve as cultural interpreters for persons often considered "out of place" by urban readers.
