This is his last novel, set in southern Appalachia (the mountains of western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee) post WW 1 and during the Prohibition Era. The narrator (presumably the author) picks up a hitchhiker (Kit) who wants her story told. Thus, he traces her history from the dirt farm, moonshine family of a mountain man through the factory towns of Appalachia to the shine runners of the mountains. This is a great character study of the mountain people, of mill village life, of the fast pace and dangers of bootlegging moonshine.
