Cynthia Rylant and Barry Moser present a gentle yet poignant picture, in words and images, of the people of Appalachia-their homes, food, dogs, surroundings, and views of the world. It is a personal and authentic perspective--one that shares the Appalachian spirit of family and connection to nature.
