Reviews

<p> The description of life in the southern Appalachian Mountains are vividly portrayed for the imagination to soak up all the color and traditions of the rich culture that is Appalachia... Everything is beautifully illustrated in order to saturate the eye while reading the text allowed you to feel that you are surrounded by the culture that is so distinct in Appalachia. --Northern Kentucky Heritage --


Gorgeous watercolors. . . . Never did I imagine that reading an ABC book would bring tears to my eyes. -- Lexington Herald-Leader
