This book consists of a series of short vignettes, memories, in no particular order, of how it was growing up in Hurricane Creek Hollow in Leslie County, Kentucky, in the 1970s. It can be read all at once, or put somewhere handy to read whenever the mood strikes for a short distraction. Each memory is very straight forward. The author is not trying to impress you with how poor or how rich or how good or how bad or how exotic or how tough or how anything she is. Amy Brudnicki has also written a novel under a pen name. She lives in Richmond, Kentucky.
