From the description at Amazon.com:
Twelve East Tennessee writers share stories from their own experiences, their families and their communities. In this collection are true accounts of Revolutionary War-era ancestors, Native Americans, civil rights pioneers, coal miners, mill workers, teachers, soldiers, orphans, feuding mountaineers and even a murderer. These writers reveal the rich and varied heritage of Southern Appalachia while giving voice to stories that transcend regional limitations.
Contributors to the book include:
Valerie Humphrey Hendrix
Joyce Williams Leo
