These short, well-written stories picture Blue Ridge Mountain life in the 1930s and 1940s with grace and love. Morgan promises in his introduction to record a fascinating era in Appalachian mountian life and introduce the world to unique people, and he does it well: 'The wonderful old folks who live in these stories' may remind the reader of Robert Frost's 'Death of the Hired Man' or Edgar Lee Master's 'Lucinda Matlock.' His biographical sketches are equal in every way to those in James Herriot's 'All Creatures Great and Small.' These stories will endure the test of time.Was this review helpful?
