Look Back With Love Author:Alberta Pierson Hannum Look Back With Love, A recollection of the Blue Ridge, is a rare evocation of a people and a place unique in the culture and lore of America. The place: Appalachia - eight states that rise like a mighty crescendo in Virginia and slash their way through West Virginia, the Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee into Alabama and Georgia. The people: ... more » the southern highlanders, for almost two centuries hidden behind the awesome varriers of great and ancient mountains, a peopl little known and even less understood.
With tenderness and spirit Alberta Hannum writes of a time that was and perhaps shall never be again; of what has been called Shakespeare's America and its people she has known so well - of their speech and song still vibrant with Elizabethan cadences; of their lives often poor in the ways of the world but rich with pride and honor and belief in independence.
Already heralded as "a book that has the lift of hear in it that is so rare a magic." Mrs. Hannum looks back truly with love, seeing in this vast and magnificent part of America the grandeur of man and nature alike.« less
