Format: Hardcover
Eva Nell Mull Wike shares a part of her heart, five generations of her family, and a beautiful portion of the gentle life of her Uncle Johnny Mull with everyone who reads her book. This book starts with the Mull Family in the Tusquittee Mountains of Clay County in North Carolina and ends on the coast of the far way shores of Scotland, on the Isle of Mull which was settled by farmers and a few royal folks 3,000 years ago.

Johnny Mull, the “ Fiddler of the Mountains” was a quiet, meek and talented musician who shared his fiddle music with his world while he planted crops and raised farm animals.

“Fiddler of the Mountains” has inspired me to write the story of my Grandmother, Tina Hudnall Orange.

Format: Hardcover
The buoyant personality of Dr. Eva Nell Wyke shows through in her documentary of the life of her Uncle Johnny Mull and his love for the music for which he was so talented. Those who in the future searches for their roots in the Mull family will be ecstatic when they discover this beautifully written book on the shelf. Dr. Wyke and those who contributed to this story are to be commended for a work of art and history.

Having known Johnny Mull for many years I found this to be a very well written book about the life of a very talented man. I would recommend it to anyone interested in western North Carolina culture.

Format: Hardcover
This book is about the life of a man who grew up in Appalachia when time were hard and how he survived and made a good life for himself. Johnny Mull was a talented musican and his gentle soul comes through in the way he lived his life. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in western North Carolina mountain cultural in mid 20th century.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Eva Nell Mull Wike wrote knowledgeably about her uncle, Fiddler of the Mountains Johnny Mull (1922-2008). He was an expert on the violin which mountain folks called the fiddle. And it was played differently, somewhat plaintively, blending with guitar, banjo and other fiddles to saw out the songs that came over from the old world with Johnny's ancestors and were passed on to subsequent generations, who, like Johnny, took up fiddle and bow at an early age. But after the book was published, she came upon a treasure--old acetate recordings made in the early 1950's and recorded on a "home recording machine" as Johnny and his friends worked for awhile in Canton, Ohio. Mrs. Myrtle Steiner, who made the recordings, and faithfully saved them all the years, unfortunately died about the time the book came off the press. But Mrs. Steiner's son, and especially her daughter, Karen, saw that the records got into Dr. Mull's hands. Dr. Mull was able to get sound engineer Johnny Carter of Rome, Georgia, to re-record and take the scratches out of the old records. The resulting disks are a treasure of some of the fiddle music of Johnny Mull, fiddler extraordinary of North Carolina, North Georgia and Tennessee. And this is the update on the story of "Fiddler of the Mountains: Attuned to the Life and Times of Johnny Mull."
