Summary (From the publisher):

Eudora Welty's first novel (1941) tells the saga of Rosamund, the daughter of a plantation owner in Mississippi, who falls in love with a bandit chief named Jamie Lockhart, seeing him as a means of escape from her cruel stepmother and ineffectual father. More magical and less introspective than Welty's later works, THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM is based loosely on Grimm's fairy tale--which was an integral part of Welty's childhood reading--but is also deeply colored by Southern folklore.
