Description

This is basically a true rendition of events, as I remember them, that occured while I grew up in the hills of southeastern Kentucky during the late 1930a s and early 40a s. The supporting characters are fictional, but the core cast is true to life. It is offered as a supplement to historical dataa a personal testimony to give pause to pre-conceived notions about desolation and feelings of total despair among the mountaineer people. This unique post-frontier age of ordinary people molded the attitudes of a generation of young adults. It instilled pride in family, a love of freedom, exceptional work ethics, a certain amount of honesty and discipline, and an unwavering faith in God. It was quite a chore, but some of us were more than a little headstrong.show more
