Publisher's Summary

As an old woman lies dying in her Appalachian home, nursed by her daughter, the son-in-law and grandson recall the old woman's tales. Her stories of the women in the southern mountains have provided them with a rich legacy of oral history.

From the first startling image - "The wind had got into the clocks and blown the hours awry" - to the final moment when time starts up again, Fred Chappell's graceful book presents a remarkable parade. You'll meet The Silent Woman, whose glances carry enough expression to change people's lives. And The Feistiest Woman, who challenges her beloved to a duel with shotgun, rifle, knife, and hammer.

Fred Chappell has won international acclaim for his lyrical, graceful writing. His many awards include a Rockefeller Grant and the Award in Literature from the National Institute of Arts and Letters. Farewell, I'm Bound to Leave You is a ringing celebration of mountain wisdom and extraordinary voices.
