About this product
- DescriptionA poignant Appalachian book written in an authentic voice by a veteran of the phemenal Foxfire Books. It's Not My Mountain Anymore is a journey which mirrors that of other proud Appalachian people who tamed this once wild Eastern frontier. Taste the harsh realities of change in our once secluded mountain community. Dad once said, The time will come when you'll have t' lock your barn at night. That time has come. Mountain hospitality needs formal invitation, so drag up a chair, cock up your feet and enjoy a journey filled with appreciation, humor, love and loss. Learn all you can about vanishing cultures.
