KIDD'S COUNTRY GROCERY
Nestled deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Appalachia sits a quaint Mom & Pop Country Store. Behind it stands Peeled Chestnut Mountain believed to be named by the Cherokees and Shawnees after peeling the bark on one side of the chestnut trees to mark their hunting territories. The Native Americans are long gone, but the mountain and its beauty stand and paint a different background for the store with each changing season. Sitting between Bramwell, West Virginia and Pocahontas, Virginia, the two towns have been left behind by the coal mining industry. The people remaining, however, stand as strong as the mountain itself. KIDD'S COUNTRY GROCERY portrays the trials and triumphs, struggles and determination that have made this country what it is. It offers a unique glimpse into a fading piece of Americana: the everyday family business in pursuit of survival, success and the opportunity to carve out a place in this world. Get ready to laugh a lot and shake your head in amazement as you read about the day-to-day adventures of Barbara, Ray and little Jaime along with Aunt Pearl and the many customers that frequent their little store.
