“…this beautifully crafted collection [is] a procession of tales rich with native detail and character, told in a language as plain and deep as the hills….” ―The New York Times
“This outstanding collection of short stories is award-winning poet Morgan’s first work of fiction…. Morgan has a deft touch for the nuances of family ties, and his characters in this realistic, evocative and often lyrical collection are formidable and well-drawn.” ―Publishers Weekly
“This volume offers rich rewards on every page and should be in any library that desires a representative collection of Appalachian or Southern literature. Its appeal is, however, not limited to specialists. Morgan’s stories belong in every library that wishes to offer its patrons a ‘good read.’” ―Choice
