From the Publisher"We already knew Roni as a first-rate banjo player and comic. This book reveals her as a sharp, observant, thinking woman, and a captivating storyteller."
—Murphy Henry, banjo player, and columnist for Banjo Newsletter and Bluegrass Unlimited
"Pressing On is an Appalachian Angela's Ashes told from a female perspective. It tells the story of Roni Stoneman's private and public life with remarkable and appealing candor. It is a book full of unfolding revelations, told with a sense of humor, and without an ounce of self-pity. Her story is entertaining at times, heartbreaking at others, but always compelling."
—Sandy L. Ballard, editor of Appalachian Journal
"This is a unique book: the authentic story, in her own voice, of a woman who was once one of America's most widely known entertainers. There will never be another Roni Stoneman, and there will never be another book like this one."
—Elinor Langer, author of Josephine Herbst
