This author has the rare gift of "personal voice". Reading the stories by Rogers is like sitting on a porch in a rocking chair, closing your eyes, and listening to the voices of your ancestors. There is sincerity, humor and heart in these tales and a good bit of surprise. Social studies teachers would be wise to introduce lessons with these rich memoirs. They are compelling and rich in detail, painting a picture of our country during trying times. Rogers work makes me want to go back to a time before IPads and Twitter....to stand in the cool mountain air and listen to the hum of a spinning wheel.
The cadence of these Appalachian tales is as gentle as a mountain trout dancing on a horse-hair line....a quiet gift in a world of constant multi-tasking and obsessive upward mobility.

Now I know the difference between a Hillbilly and a Mountain Man.

We are fortunate to have Ray and his siblings to relate to us their experiences of growing up in the mountains of North Carolina.

Yes, Ray tells a good story and definitely adds enough humor to make it fun!

Just reading this book was like breathing fresh air. Being from the piedmont of NC, I can easily identify with everything the author wrote. I still use many of those words our English teachers frown on. The richness of life, not in dollars, is what this book is about. I loved the author's comparisons in past and present conditions. Hard work was wholesome and honest, both are disappearing today.

Cousin Ray is a great true story teller! I grew up on the family farm in Upper Crabtree, so a lot of his stories have precious memories for me. Love my Rogers family and beautiful Smokey Mountains. Loved the book and so proud of my author cousin.

Ray has been a friend for 53 years and this story sounds just like talking to Ray in person. Since I have been to Waynesville, NC I can relate to much of the "country" lifestyle" in that area. Great people and a wonderful area of our country. This is a GOOD read.

Reminds me of my mother's family, she was from Arkansas. Same family faith and humor. She was a child of the depression and a young woman during the war years. Thanks for triggering my memories she gone now and most of her family. Than you.

I thought the author had interesting stories and memories of his childhood, and was very personable. It was like listening to my grandfather's stories (including that sometimes the author tells you something he already told you a few pages ago, which is also very much like my relatives).
