Wade Talbot relishes the chaos of journalism. He starts as editor of weekly newspaper in North Carolina and becomes a reporter in New York just as the civil rights struggles explode into demonstrations across the country. Becky Anderson leaps from her little southern town to college, to New York and then to Europe, where through sheer grit she becomes a force in the movie business. Wade romanticizes his boyhood in the hills of home. Becky, perennially short of money, can’t wait to break away. But something clicks between them. They compete, they quarrel, they savage each other, and one day in the deep, rolling hills of old Virginia they come together. MOUNTAIN GIRL is an inside look at the 1960s Amercian civil rights movement, a gritty travelogue with stops in Paris and an island in the Mediterranean, and a sexual duel in which both partners learn and grow. Becky loses a baby. She and Wade begin to hike the 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail. Wade finds, finally, a theme for the novel he wants to write. But at a cost. He walks alone at the end to keep a promise, to climb a special mountain.

Appalachian Mountain Girl is a sensitive and beautifully written autobiographical account of a childhood in the coalmine district of Depression-era Kentucky. With humor and warmth—but without sentimentality—Rhoda Warren recounts the lives of these mining people whose religion and family values buttressed and sustained them. As a young girl, Rhoda began to catch glimpses of the world outside her narrow mountain community through the stories in True Confessions magazine and the pictures in the Montgomery Ward catalog—which to her seemed like “visions of a fairy world.” When Rhoda married and moved to a small town in New York State, it seemed that her dreams of a better life had been realized. Yet scenes of Letcher always “hovered in the back roads of her memory.” When she revisited her homeland, this time as a New Yorker, Rhoda found that Letcher was no longer the place of her memories.

As a child growing up in Cleburne County, Arkansas, I learned most of my familys past from my mother. My mother spent her entire life in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. The Ozark Mountains, with their beautiful hardwood trees, rocky and rolling hills, clear running streams, wild game, and the Little Red River were a living paradise to some of the greatest people in the world. The Ozark Mountain people were often characterized as being raggedy, barefooted hill folks, who talked funny and used bad grammar. Most of them were considered to be illiterate, and if they were lucky, they might have a fourth grade education. They were considered to be different from most folks in Arkansas because of their superstitions, old remedies, and funny ways. Most of the hill folks in Van Buren and Cleburne counties either dipped snuff or chewed tobacco. Several of them made their living making and selling moonshine.

Energetic eleven-year-old Elizabeth eagerly embraces mountain life when she moves with her family to her grandparents' West Virginia farm in the late 1940s. Adventures abound amid daily chores for this imaginative, inquisitive girl. But Elizabeth's idyllic life belies family troubles. Family and community alike shun her Uncle John-moody, intuitive, and withdrawn-and Elizabeth wants to know why. Can she forge a connection with Uncle John and will she be able to do it in time? Music, family ties, belief in God, farm animals, meals straight from the land, the beauty of the surrounding hills and the rich mountain culture play more than a supporting role in Elizabeth's story. Rose Creasy McMills lives in the Chicago suburbs but grew up in West Virginia. She holds a master's degree in English, has taught writing in college, and written for newspapers and magazines. This book is a return to the beloved hills of her childhood.

Eleven-year-old April Sloane has never set foot in a school before, and now that President Hoover and his wife are building a one-room schoolhouse in the hollow of the Blue Ridge Mountains where April lives, she is eager to attend it. But these are the Depression years, and Mama, who has been grieving ever since the accidental death of her seven-year-old son, wants April to stay home and do the chores around their dilapidated farm. With her grandmother's intercession, April is grudgingly allowed to go. The kind teacher encourages her apt pupil, who finds a new world opening up to her. But at home, April cannot repair the relationship with her mother, and worse, her mother overhears the dark secret April confesses to her teacher regarding the true cause of her brother's death, for which April feels responsible. The author has used her own experience growing up in a rural area of northern Virginia to create the vivid characters and authentic dialogue and background detail that characterize this finely honed debut novel. She has based the one-room schoolhouse on papers in the Hoover Presidential Library in West Branch, Iowa, which include letters between the White House and the young teacher who taught at the school.
