“This novel opens our eyes to the empty little towns and Wal-mart-paralyzed hamlets across Appalachia. Smith dives deep into mountain folk past and brings the old ways up to air. We see where all our precious heritage has slipped away to. I love this book because it shows just how advanced these disrespected communities are. And I love it because it serves as a cautionary tale we would all do well to heed.”
