Beschreibung

In the little Appalachian town of Sourwood, life at the end of the Great Depression may have been tough, but it was rich beyond compare.Building on a distinguished body of work celebrating and preserving mountain culture, renowned writer Billy C. Clark once again revisits his boyhood during a bygone era.
