An engaging reminder of what we've lost, and what we're losing, by being so driven and materialistic and bent on living forever."-The Boston Globe

I loved this book. The author has a way of making you feel like you are really living in the mountains of Virginia.

The portrayals of small-town life are great, but I wanted to see the author's involvement more personally.

This was an interesting, but different book and I enjoyed this persons story on her life when she moved to a new neighborhood and how it changed through the years.

This book was an enjoyable read about a woman who left the "city life" and moved to a home on a mountain in a rural med-east state. Her activities are interesting and all of the characters are real, alive, believable and intriguing. I grew up in a city just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, in the the Appalachian Mountains, so her book was assuredly authentic. I found it a good story about people with a history and, perhaps, a future where they reside...as long as "urban sprawl" doesn't swallow them and their way of life right up!

The author gives her personal view & experiences of living in a small town in the mountians of Virginia. A humorous, entertaining & thought provoking read. Being a country person myself, I could relate to many of the author's feelings about the encrochment of 'city folks' into the rural areas.

Enjoyable ramblings of a womans life living on a mountain year round alone, after moving from city life to the cabin built by her mother where she spent the summers of her youth. And the clinging to and declining of the ways of life in times gone by.
