A Cumberland Vendetta (1895)
Set in Appalachia at the turn of the 20th century.

A Knight of the Cumberland (1906)
The scenes are laid along the waters of the Cumberland, the lair of moonshiner and of feudsman. The knight is a moonshiner's son, and the heroine a beautiful girl perversely christened "The Blight." Two impetuous young Southerners' fall under the spell of "The Blight's" charms and she learns what a large part jealousy and pistols have in the love making of the mountaineers.

Crittenden (1900)
Story of love and war. The son of a former Confederate officer takes part in the Spanish War and finds his affection for the Union flag aroused. Good descriptions of fighting in Cuba.

The Heart of the Hills (1912)
Kentucky story in which the shots fly rather fast, whether among primitive feudists of the mountains or in the political struggles and "tobacco war" of the blue-grass region, but throughout the author keeps in mind the more serious purpose of describing both sections and their inhabitants.

In Happy Valley (1917)
Happy Valley and St. Hilda are the centre of the comedy and tragedy in which Allaphair, Christopher, Parson Small, the Angel, the Pope, the Marquise of Queensberry, and the Goddess play their parts, sometimes amusing, sometimes pathetic. Always they stand out as real people of the mountains – notable additions to the gallery of Kentucky mountaineers with which Mr. Fox has for so many years enriched our literature.

The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come (1903)
This is a story of Kentucky, in a settlement known as "Kingdom Come." It is a life rude, semi-barbarous; but natural and honest, from which often springs the flower of civilization."Chad," the "little shepherd" did not know who he was nor whence he came—he had just wandered from door to door since early childhood, seeking shelter with kindly mountaineers who gladly fathered and mothered this waif about whom there was such a mystery—a charming waif, by the way, who could play the banjo better that anyone else in the mountains.

The Trail of the Lonesome Pine (1908)
The "lonesome pine" from which the story takes its name was a tall tree that stood in solitary splendor on a mountain top. The fame of the pine lured a young engineer through Kentucky to catch the trail, and when he finally climbed to its shelter he found not only the pine but the foot-prints of a girl. And the girl proved to be lovely, piquant, and the trail of these girlish foot-prints led the young engineer a madder chase than "the trail of the lonesome pine."
