Item description for Highland Handcrafters: Appalachian Craftspeople by Michael Joslin...

Highland Handcrafters: Appalachian Craftspeople tells the story of both the early and late immigrants to the region. From Mary Patton, whose powder blew the British from the Carolinas at Kings Mountain, to Billy Ruth Sudduth, a recent "settler" who has brought basket-making to a high-art form. This book profiles the famous, such as blacksmith Bea Hensley and his son Michael, whose hand-forged creations are sought by presidents and tycoons, and Arval Woody whose chairs rock in museums and mansions. And it presents the humble, such as Joe Willis, whose hand-shaped handles have served mountain workers for over half a century, and Warren Campbell, whose hand-sewn harnesses adorn sturdy draft horses working in woods and fields.
