In 1965, Lincoln County, West Virginia, could not find a teacher for its one-room school on Francis Creek. A couple of weeks after the beginning of the school year, Carol Lucas who had grown up about ten miles from there, agreed to interrupt her college career at Marshall University and take the job. The school had 18 students, a coal-burning stove, a well with a pump, and an out-house. This book tells about this school year from the perspective of the teacher and also follows up on the lives of the students since that time.
