You Don't Outdie Me is a brilliantly revealing volume about Hohenberger's encounter with the people of Brown County.

In the 1920s, drawn by spectacular vistas and colorful fall foliage, photojournalist Frank Hohenberger (1876-1962) traveled to the hills of Brown County. Once there, he found more to photograph than just a picturesque landscape and he set out to record the lives of the people who lived among the hills. If You Don't Outdie Me is a brilliantly revealing volume about Hohenberger's encounter with the people of Brown County.

Outdie Me is a brilliantly revealing volume about Hohenberger’s encounter with the people of Brown County

If You Don't Outdie Me is a brilliantly revealing volume about Hohenberger’s encounter with the people of Brown County. Rather than a society of amusing and peaceful rustics, Hohenberger discovered that there were "tragedies in the valleys" and rancorous complexities that belied sentimental notions about small town life.

Excellent work of folklore by Dillon Bustin. His text, to accompany the wonderful photographs, makes for engaging reading.

Brown County, part of southern Indiana's Hill Country, is a great destination for landscape artists, bird lovers, and folks digging for their genealogical roots (not ginseng). Dillon Bustin's book "IF YOU DON'T OUTDIE ME" was inspired by photographer Frank Hohenberger, & has been popular ever since its 1982 publication by Indiana University Press. However, they do not respond to continuing pleas that it be reprinted.

The reason may be that in 1993 I.U. Press published "Frank Hohenberger's Indiana Photographs" (isbn: 025331285X). (One 1931 photo in that book, edited by Cecil Byrd, shows a harnessed white horse at Corydon's historic Capitol Square; the horse appears to be reading a sign: "NO AUTO PARKING.") Hohenberger's sense of humor kept him young. When I first met Frank Hohenberger he was in his early 70s, though I wouldn't have guessed that (see picture on p.35 when he was 57).

Bustin's 13 vignettes (not exactly a Brown County word!) include Harry Kelp - - the one who actually "OUTDIED" the others. In the late 40s he lived on Nashville's Village Green by the Methodist Church with his sister Olive. She happened to be the one who invited me to transfer my membership from upstate New York, and she was a truly caring lady. Allie Ferguson is shown (p.45) outside her boarding house down the street. It later became "the Ferguson House shop" with antiques (& maybe some junk) that owner Alice Weaver, a strong-minded resident, might or might not allow you to buy. "Grandma Barnes" (read p.124-131) is still the subject of stories and songs. The very touching photograph on p.129 was taken when she was the *FIRST* Brown County Blossom Festival Queen, chosen at the insistence of "outsider" artists!

Other photos chosen by Dillon Bustin are among my favorites: p.2, Mullis making shingles; p.106, Bohall making baskets; p.114, the Beisels making music. Bustin wrote that "Brown County is the nearest part of the South in the North" . . .& . . . "the inhabitants of those hills have always been skilled at factional feuding" . . . & . . . "they have an indefinable folksy essence that draws people to the area" . . . "they can indulge in a flexibility with Time." The author's *Prologue* includes a picture from Nov.1929 (possibly the week of the stock market crash) showing the Liars' Bench which had been trashed on Halloween night. One 'local' said, "It's worse'n bad. It's th' ruination uv th' town." Another Nashville icon, the old Log Jail, was built in 1879 (at a cost of $1500.). It generated some of that feuding when folks put up resistance to having the Jail turned into a concession with tickets sold for tours.

In contrast to feuding & pranks is a picture (p.7) taken from the hill, now Locust Lane above the Courthouse, showing a lovely pastoral scene. That 'look' has disappeared & now all is bustle, while the 'natives' & 'non' continue arguing about just what constitutes the special quality of life here. Reviewer mcHAIKU is content to lean back and simply enjoy.
