Mason Jars in the Flood is a collection of stories by an eminent storyteller, Gary Carden. The Appalachian Writers Association said, "The Appalachian Writers Association said that Mason Jars in the Flood has a true, consistent voice and that there is an unforced, genuine feel to the events described by the author. In addition, Mason Jars in the Flood has a strong resonance of Appalachian spirit which remembers, in times of greatest happiness, ones who cannot share its joy, and, conversely, its sadness never obliterates the pleasure it once had. Gary Carden's work reflects the Appalachian culture which depends on a melancholy-tinged hope and whose people work under a resilience instilled in them from a tradition of necessity and faith." The Association selected Mason Jars as the Book of the Year in 2000.
