An absorbing story of a young college student, who learns about herself as she chronicles the lives of her ancestors. The authors wonderful portrayal of folk beliefs of the Virginia region, makes this a must read for anyone interested in folklore!
What an adventure. Lee Smith has written a novel which will help keep a dying era alive. The ways of mountain folk, their language and dialect. Rich are the stories within the pages. It has 4 letter words I personally could do without....but I guess they do go with the times and people. There are sentences and phrases that remind me so much of those I heard when growing up in rural East Texas. Brought back memories of my own. I really enjoyed reading this one. :)
