About the Author
Dennis Kilgore lives with his family in central Virginia. Both sides of his very extended family arrived here in 1733, one from Ireland and the other from parts less certain. They settled in the Kentucky and Tennessee mountains, one siding joining in marriage with the Cherokee Nation. There flowed the usual assortment of adventurers, preachers, coal miners, moonshiners, and one very crazy sheriff, until sometime in the 1940s, God, obviously deciding that there were not enough troublemakers in the world, united them. Some of the situations described in the book occurred in the author's childhood as did some of the people. The latter, however, are too long gone to complain.
