In a rich blend of memoir and meditation, Abbott focuses her graceful and witty attention on mothers and daughters of the South. Theirs is a world of red dirt and backbreaking chores and roof-raising revival meetings - a far cry from the magnolias and mint juleps of Gone with the Wind. "The South of the backwoods, hillbilly plain folk has at last found its true and inspired interpreter," says C. Vann Woodward.

My favourite kind of book,1900 letters from a woman homesteader,true story,very upbeat. DO NOT read the forward first unless you. want to ruin the whole book. Why do people do that? If they know so much and or are. such wonderful writers they should write their own book instead of ruining that book for the next reader!
