This book can be described as funny, irreverent, and serious all at once! It is a 1950's-era coming-of-age story that takes place in the coal mining district of Mingo County, West Virginia. This area is the home of the famous Hatfield-McCoy feud, and the author is a great-great nephew of "Devil Anse" Hatfield, the leader of the clan. Told with a humorous tongue in cheek, these Appalachian stories of childhood hopes, loves, adventures and misadventures are spiced with social and political commentary on the times. Even if you didn't grow up in the Appalachians, you'll enjoy this reminiscence of a more innocent time.
