Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Delightful. It brings back a flood of memories for many." -- Ashland Independent

"A story about the lives of mountain people in the old days. If you enjoy hearing older people tell stories, you will find this an engrossing book." -- Bowling Green Daily News

"Gone are the days Verna Mae Slone tells about, so this simple memoir is doubly touching -- a record of a way of tlife of a proud and upright mountain folk." -- Christian Science Monitor

"A plain, interesting, sensitive book.... We see a people living contently in unison with a rugged environment which has 'imprisoned and protected them for 150 years.'" -- Library Journal

"I cannot imagine a reader who would not be caught and then held by this direct, simply written account. Every page made me see for the first time beyond the cliches of mountain life." -- New York Times Book Review

"A remembrance of a close-knit community, and of a hard-working people who still found the time to walk into the valley, listen to bird songs, and smell the flowers. This is definitely a book worth reading." -- Register of the Kentucky Historical Society
