I enjoyed learning about how the Hope Mission started and grew as I have watched it on the news and wondered. There were a few typos in the version I bought but they may have been edited out by now. It is a worthwhile read to see how a person has an innocent good idea and keeps it pure for its development without being deterred by all of the obstacles put in the way. It would be interesting to follow it up by reading a well-researched chronological history of the mining industry and the other causes of the poverty that led to the conditions in which many in the rural counties of the southeast live.

Excellent history of one of the newer and most successful ministries at work in the southern Appalachian region of Kentucky and east Tennessee. I know these people and have observed their work from the beginning and now have an opportunity to be a part of it. Biggs got the story right by starting with the story of John Boggs and Julie Holland . The poverty in the region is devasting and unimaginable and education which can lead to economic development is the only lasting and sustainable hope for the region. Biggs captures that in his writing.

I was skeptical of this book when I started reading it because I don't generally like books about poverty and suffering, but I have a fascination with the Appalachian Mountains, so I thought I would give it a chance. I am so glad that I did. The story is both parts heartwarming and heartbreaking. What this woman tried to do for the people of the Appalachian Mountains is amazing and I'm glad someone told her story. Not a book that you want to read while reading other books.

Imagine living with no hope...this book brings to light poverty in America. Often we want to ignore it and pretend it doesn't exist in our own country and neighborhoods. I would recommend this book to everyone. It is relevant to all ages, races and gender. Well done, Richard Biggs. Your compassion is so obvious through the powerful words you have written.
