Overview

The early morning sun slowly burns off the drifting grey feathers of mist in the Appalachian Mountains. The quiet landscape slowy throws off the dark comforter of night. The people of the mountains go about their daily lives, largely unaware how closely their habits, customs, and beliefs mirror those of their mountain ancestors. Captured within these pages are folkways and customs of the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia. Life and death, birth and burial, sickness and health, premonitions and superstitions are all recounted here for you to read and enjoy before they, too, "burn-off" and disappear.
