Panoramic view of the people of Western North Carolina. The book is divided into sections relating to a theme (ex. "school", "religion", "outside influences", etc.) and there are straight quotes taken from natives. A great way to learn about the people and history of the area.

We six children rode in the back of a horse drawn wagon above our home to pick up walnuts to store for winter. The best part was when my Mother would make the first walnut cake from what we had harvested.
