"Dickenson County is the setting and subject of the articles and photographs contained in this volume. ... The articles were originally produced by county teachers at the request of school superintendent J.H.T. Sutherland. The bulk of the writing was done between 1925 and 1930, and centered around the many one- and two-room schools found in Dickenson County during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The articles ... reflect the whole of earlier mountain life and culture. ... such topics as first settlers, Indian and hunting stories, local legends, pioneer customs and traditions, early churches and industries, and even murders."--Page v.
