This book is an overcomer on many levels. When Barbara Taylor Woodall took "It's Not My Mountain Anymore" out of the hands of Random House and pioneered with non-profit Catch the Spirit of Appalachia, she blazed a trail that has transcended economic, social, cultural and geographic obstacles and supports a revolution in the arena of book publishing--showing that books of relevance CAN be viable outside of the grip of major publishing houses. Bravo!!!

I read lots of books. Some will stay with me forever, leaving a mark on my heart from stirred memories of back in the day when life was lived through diligence and solid work ethics and shared community. I will remember this book and have been changed by reading it, as I remembered the legacy of my ancestors who were mountain people. This book was written from the heart and in turn touched mine with its simplicity and boldness. Some books are the real deal ... this is one of them.

This is a fun, humorous book about a family raised in the back woods of Georgia then in the Carolina Mountains. It is a Memoir and at times gets a little tedious but is still well-worth reading. The author shares personal childhood experiences in addition to including a brief history of her kindred.
We also witness growth in the mountains as with he own growth and maturity.
The ever changing world tries to accompany change in society. Many feel we have lost so much valuable lessons of time that we need to recapture a portion of it.
I would recommend this for discussion groups, plus, just pleasant reading.
There are some 'rough' slang words but basically clean enough reading.

I have known of Foxfire for many, many years and have some of the books, which date back several years. I have also read other books about the Appalachians, including "Christy," set in the Smoky Mountain area. I have always been delighted to read about the people and the culture of that area and have had admiration for their strong family bonds and their self-reliance. As noted in this book, if one can't grow it, make it, or find it, one doesn't have it. (Which reminds me of my own grandmother, who taught me "Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without!")

I am glad I had the opportunity to read this book to get a more modern take on the area and the ongoing changes. It is, I suppose, inevitable that change (or "progress") must arrive to any area, any group of people, and as the author notes, some change can be positive.

The author's "voice" is delightful. Her mother had a strong sense of humor and clearly her daughter inherited a love of laughter and an ability to inspire it.

Despite the sections dealing with negative emotions left by land development, economic changes, and other issues, one is not left feeling "down" after finishing the book. The author's sense of hope and faith is strong and keeps the book from becoming a memorial of "the way things once were" but rather an expression of how much was and is worthwhile and is worth preserving or restoring.

I am not a religious person at all. The author clearly has a strong faith and it is expressed in the book, but it is not preachy or proselytizing in the least. Her quiet yet strong belief is somehow reassuring and comforting.

I obtained this book for free for the Kindle and will be strongly considering purchasing an actual copy for my library.

A very enjoyable book is what you get when you take the time to read "It's Not My Mountain Anymore." When I began reading this book I was very skeptical of whether or not I would enjoy it. I must point out that the kindle cover is a pretty picture but leaves a lot to be desired in the realm of what the book could possibly be about. After reading the book, I see this cover as a symbol of what this book was really about, a simpler time when nature played a bigger role in people's lives than cell phones and email did.

For me, the most important part of this book was the ability of the author to tell a compelling story while she was also creating an entertaining experience for her readers. There were a few slow spots in this book, but the writing was well thought out and I was able to enjoy the book without ever thinking of giving up before the end. This is an emotional book filled with the remembrance of days gone by and some really wonderful descriptive language. I liked it.

Someone recommended this book to me and I am glad they did. Excellent read. If you like a truthful yet endearing perspective about appalachian people, this is a must have for your collection. If you are a fan of Foxfire- you will be enlightened by this inside look into what went on behind the scenes, and how foxfire isnt just about books on folklore and people. Its also about love, neighbors and community, much like the place it is based in. I was exceptionally pleased to see that this book did an excellent job of presenting the people of the area in true persepctive and negated the long told rumors that the people are like the hillbillies of the movie that was filmed there 40 years ago. So if you are looking for a fictional book about how the people are like the characters in Deliverance, this isnt your book. Great job Barbara.
