by Alyce Faye Bragg
Another collection of stories by columnist Alyce Faye Bragg, writer for The Charleston Gazette and the Clay County Free Press. Bragg's columns are woven with a nostalgic note of how life used to be in the hills of West Virginia, and underlines the longing of those who have left the country life to come back home again. A touching and accurate portrayal of the land, its people and their country ways.
