Format: Paperback
I have just completed reading Carl Feather's Mountain People in a Flat Land. This book tells the stories of migrants from West Virginia, who left for the jobs in Ashtabula County, Ohio. As one who was born and raised in Ashtabula County during 1948-1971, it brought back memories. Many of the people were people I worked with at the Electromet, or were with friends with my parents. I could hear the noise and the danger,as my father worked there for 25 years. It is a wonderful addition to anyone looking for works on local history. While it does not have the scope of Studs Terkel,one realixes not all migration was to the big cities, but to the many small towns in Ohio who had similiar factories. While I enjoyed reading the book, I was left with a sadness, since many of the shops no longer exist nor do many of the people including my parents.

I purchased this because it is written by a relative of my husband.
The book is well written.It fills in some of the blanks in our history of
many of my husband's family. It will be interesting to anyone who is interested
in history.
