When I started reading this book, I found it interesting as I grew up in Big Stone Gap. I would not call the area barren, although I thought so when I was growing up there. Barren is not this area as many students finised high school well prepared to succeed outside the Wise County area. It gave a great start socially, emotionally, educationally, and spiritually to many minorities as well as whites to become successfull in many professions in other parts of the country. As I kept reading the book, it became very repetitive (the reason for the 3 stars). What was written in over 300 pages, I thought could have been done in 200 pages or less without loosing the content. I do commend the parents for a job well done in raising their family and sticking to their values. I also commend all 7 children for being obedient and sticking to the values their parents taught them and for not succumbing to peer pressures. Great read for young parents anywhere with young children.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
