left uneaten by the Old Sow of time
The “occasional” Reprint Series of Porkopolis.org is a collection of significant, but difficult to find, pig-themed print materials.
Selections presented here have qualified because I believe them to be interesting, enjoyable or informative to readers, while my own difficulty in originally rooting them out suggested they needed better exposure.
I have gathered together here some fine slops, concocted of other thinkers choicest morsels, and little but the bucket that holds them all is mine own.

- by Tobe Hodge
- Originally published in 1887, this is a humorous account of the Razor-back hogs then native to West Virginia. It was written by Charles McIlvaine (1840–1909) who used Tobe Hodge as a pseudonym in his works. McIlvaine commonly wrote in an approximation of the rural West Virginia dialect and/or caricaturing that part of the United States.
