Loved this book...it was a great read - could not put it down. This is actually quite an incredible view of the history of rural America; if you like historical novels, this is a good one. Told in first-person narratives by the residents of these mountains over a span of a century, you see life through their eyes and come to understand why people made some very strange life choices. These poor people teach us so much about acceptance and giving...it is inspirational without meaning to be - it is what it is - well written and beautiful.
Definitely a classic.
