THE POWER AND THE GLORY....tells of Appalachian life in the mid 1800's. A really good read! Here is a well-drawn novel with true characters which help us to avoid some of the stereotyping of Appalachians prevalent in most of the literature of the day! 200 Pages In Print!

This novel deserves our attention because it examines industrialization and changing roles in Appalachian society at the turn of the century. The Power and the Glory is an important publishing event for scholars of Appalachian fiction. It should serve as an example of early twentieth-century novels that examine the effect industrialization had on communities, individuals, and, in the this case, on women and children."

This takes place during the time when cotton mills through out the south used not only teenagers, but many children under the age of 7 to work in the miills. Many young women and men came down out of the mountains to work in the mills and send mooney home. This is a story of s very unique young girl and her uncle, momma and sisters and brothers. This is a page turner! It's free! An amazing story!
