More About This Book

Overview

Say hello to the folks from Sweetgum County!

The Quabalaka Mountain Range is bounded on the north and west by the mighty Quabalaka River (Cherokee for “big fish”) and on the south by mountains so high that the early settlers, who looked up and saw them disappear into the clouds, proclaimed the area to be the “very foot of heaven.”

This novel is a patchwork of the funny, happy, tragic, and sometimes poignant tales of the generations who have lived and died in this area. Their stories, tied together, form one inspiring adventure.

The story begins with John Edgar Salt, a mountain-flower grandson of Sweetgum County’s most prominent bootlegger during the early thirties, and makes its way from the depression through post-World War II. It is peppered with a myriad of lovable characters who, whether they deserved it or not, were blessed by an angel—a four-legged one.

“This book is not a story, it’s an experience and experiences have no outlines. To try and read this book and not feel it is like trying to grab smoke. Good luck.” —Lori Hebride, Book Editor, The Sweetgum Gazette

“A great read! Our town hasn’t been this excited about anything since President Millard W. Fillmore visited us in 1853.” —The Honorable Arlo P. Gaddis, Mayor, Sweetgum

“God truly does work in mysterious ways. Mr. Jones’ tongue-in-cheek masterpiece is a creative example of how it could happen. Did it happen? Perhaps someday in heaven, we’ll all find out!” —Cecil P. Bledsoe, Associate Pastor, Saint Lucy Church of the White Mule

B.J. Jones was born in the Cumberland Mountain area of Southern Kentucky, a region not unlike the fictitious place he writes about. Having spent his entire career in advertising, culminating as Senior Vice President and Executive Creative Director of J. Walter Thompson/Chicago, he is now spending his elder years writing about God and the people he loves.
