Overview

The Scotch-Irish Garrett family had worked, survived and passed down to each new generation a small Obey River bottomland farm in eastern Tennessee. A series of events would occur, erasing the proud family's heritage, testing the mettle of those remaining, and altering their lives forever. They lost their infant daughter and shortly thereafter the father, Andrew, died an accidental death. Now his young widow, Sarah, and young son, Aaron Joseph, were faced with the problems of survival on this small, remote farm and were ultimately forced to relocate to make room for the waters of Dale Hollow Lake. The reader is caught up in the trials and tribulations of this family, shares in their sadness and happiness, and is allowed to witness changes affecting an entire community, from the Depression period through the nineties.
