    Overall

    I was unfamiliar with the works of Lee Smith until I listened to this audiobook. My family roots are in Appalachia, and I was immediately transported back to my childhood. The speech patterns and idioms brought my grandmother vivdly to mind. I have since read the book, and I don't think I would have done so if I hadn't first listened to it. The narrator does a superb job; anyone interested in the history of Appalachia would love this reading.
