0 Reviews
This book is an autobiography of the author's life. It is written from memories of a bygone era. A story of growing up in Appalachia during the Depression.

Intertwined with the harshness of the times were humor, joy, and always love. The book captures the spirit, the customs, and the traditions of the magnificent, ordinary people who lived during that time.

The beauty of nature comes alive from the hills, valleys and streams. You can hear the strains of the mountain music, and feel your heart warmed by the faith of the mountain people.
