Editorial Reviews


"Finalist for the Governor's Award given by the Kentucky Historical Society."―

"Tells the story of its progenitor and one of the most dramatic social movements ever to arise from the Eastern Kentucky hills."―Appalachian Heritage

"[Cora Wilson Stewart] expose[s] the lie upon which our academic disciplinary boundaries and [her] late 19th-century and early 20th-century political boundaries too easily rest. We cannot leave [this book] still believing that Appalachia was politically and economically isolated from the rest of the nation."―Appalachian Journal

"Provides that unvarnished look at an important woman leader that makes her real and understandable from a local, regional, and national viewpoint. Baldwin recaptures an important legacy."―H-Net Reviews

"This is a richly detailed and layered account of a pioneering crusader for adult literacy."―Journal of American History

"The book is well written and engaging... [It] makes a useful contribution to reclaiming the story of an important champion of literacy, still a subject of great concern in education today."―Journal of Southern History

"Yvonne Baldwin was nominated for the Kentucky Literary Award for excellence in non-fiction."―Kentucky Monthly

"In a significant achievement, Baldwin demonstrates the importance of the latter half of the progressive era."―Ohio Valley History

"In this wide-ranging study, Baldwin examines Stewart's life and philosophy . . . and demonstrates that Stewart made a national as well as a state impact on combating illiteracy."―Paul Fuller, Transylvania University

""Sound and well-documented analysis of a significant twentieth-century advocate for cultural and social change."―John A. Hardin, American Historical Review"―John A. Hardin, American Historical Review

This is a relative who promoted education in eastern Kentucky, not only for children, but especially their parents who wanted to know what their children were learning. A job well done!
