Another collection of stories by columnist Alyce Faye Bragg, writer for The Charleston Gazette and the Clay County Free Press.

A touching and accurate portrayal of the land, its people and their country ways.

About the author:

The oldest of seven children; born on Big Laurel Creek in Clay County, West Virginia in 1935. Mother of six children; grandmother of 22, and great-grandmother of 23. Born and raised in the country, and still lives on the same farm where she was raised. Has a sincere love for nature and the beauty of the hills.

"I love to write, and my main desire is to describe things in such a way that the reader can see it too. God has given me a talent for description, and permitted me to live in a part of the country where there is a wealth of natural beauty. Also, He has blessed us with a huge family where there is always something happening!"
