Book synopsis/description:

You'll get Aunt Belinda's recipe for peaceful babysitting ("Put molasses on his fingers and give him a feather to play with")...

You'll learn How Appalachia Got Thataway...

You'll find out why the Washington Post's Mr. Good got taken in faster than a mailbag at a whistle-stop...

You'll read about Cap Hatfield and what he kept shouting at Devil Anse's wake...

And why FDR, Jr. walked out of the ramp feed with his nose in the air...

And why the boy spit in the peaches...

This rich collection of 100-proof writing is still warm from a man who makes you choke back a sob one minute and sends people to see what you're laughing at the next. As pearl Buck says, "It's pure and perfect Americana."
