When she was eight years old, in 1954, the author, Dorothy E. Duty, lost her mother to cancer so she and her two younger sisters were raised by their maternal grandparents. Their father worked at a steel mill in Wierton, West Virginia, two hours away. After high school, she worked as a phone operator in New Martinsville, West Virginia, and subsequently lived in Tennessee and New Mexico. These are her stories of growing up on a West Virginia farm.
