Region Oriented and Unique Jan 10, 2006
I throughly enjoyed the poetry in this delightful book. I was especially moved by the poem "Fallen heroes" because I have two family members who have served in the war on terror. The poem expressed many of the feelings we all shared on 9-11.
As a mother, I was also moved by the touching poems about the death of the young daughter. So poignant!
As a southerner, I could well relate to the fried chicken, the porch swings and the rocking chairs. A very short poem entitled "A Pebble" held a special message for me. Every family must have a "rock."
There were many experiences, thoughts and emotions expressed in the poetry in this book. I highly recommend it!
Excellent Regional Poetry Dec 12, 2005
The authors have compiled a wonderful collection of spiritual and nature poems that will appeal to anyone who loves the Upper Cumbeland area of Tennessee, especially the culture and environment of Clay County. I was honored by the authors with the first copy of the first edition, and my high school students regularly read the poems and include them in their own collections of favorites.
Another family recommendation :) Dec 10, 2004
This is a beautiful book of poetry written by my talented aunt and her friend. These touching poems capture the essence of life in rural America, fond childhood memories, and other personal and universal themes. Great illustrations, too!

I absolutely loved this book! I could not put it down. It was very inspiring to read, and some poems even made me cry. I would have loved it, even if one of the authors, Sue Mahaney, wasn't my sister! I am very proud of her, and her co-writer, Jo Scott, for their accomplishments. I would highly recommend the book for anyone.
