Overview

A book to slow you down, warm your heart, and lift you up. It'll take you to many forgotten places, introduce you to people who generally don't make headlines, and give you a taste of the essence of Kentuckians - the good people who make the Commonwealth unique.

Byron Crawford has written in the foreword to Home Sweet Kentucky: We have come to admire the couple, not only for their wordsmithing, but for their loyalty to Kentucky, and for the deep sense of belonging that they share with us for this place. We count them now as our friends or as neighbors with whom we might hold an afternoon conversation across the garden gate or the old corner fence post.

So, come along to Bath County, where the memory of a dog named "Bo" rides on the sound of fox hounds off in the distance. Travel to McCreary County and meet eighty-one-year-old Timothy Taylor who loves the grasslands surrounded by forests. Visit with Sister Mary Jane at Nazareth, Kentucky, whose father was a moonshiner, and Bonnie Consolo from Menifee County, who waves goodbye with her feet. Sit awhile at Penn's Store at Gravel Switch, eat a bologna sandwich and listen to Dava and Dawn sing "Coming Home to You."

Home Sweet Kentucky is a gentle reminder to stay as long as you like, Chances are you'll find that sense of place that binds you to the beauty and the goodness of a way of life.
