Roger Osborne's "Voices From Appalachia" preserves the thoughts, hopes, dreams and struggles of the Appalachian people. The book is enlighting, entertaining and blessed with down home stories written from the heart by Roger and other Appalachian writers. "Voices From Appalachia" will live forever in my memory. The stories are about love, sharing, sacrifice, tragedy, grief, and forgiveness. Readers will find great joy in meeting and knowing the people of Appalachia. Roger Osborne is a master storyteller that shows gentle warmth and wit in his writings about growing up in and around mining towns of West Virginia. He documents an Appalachian boy's discovery of varied pleasures, puzzling paradoxes, and inescapable pain of finding his place in the community and the world. I also enjoyed reading Roger Osborne's three other books, "Land Of Yesterday, The Mountains Wept and Pilgrimage To An Appalachian Mining Camp."
