Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Since the material in this book has come from the traditions of the people who live among the hills and mountains of West Virginia, people who are proud to be called mountaineers, I feel that it is important to tell something about these people whose ancestors chose as the motto of their state, 'Mountaineers Are Always Free.'" Patrick W. Gainer
