A first edition of this important book is a truly unusual item. Eighteen mountain women tell their own stories in this classic of oral history and mountain pride. Kathy Kahn wrote this book when she and her first husband, Si Kahn - yes, the well-known activist and folk singer - and their two little boys were living on a small farm up a holler in Fannin County, Georgia, not far from the North Carolina line. When my late wife and I visited them there, we met one of the little girls their boys were playing with. Her name was Blossom. We decided then and there that would be the name of the first sister that our two boys, Brook and Berry, would have. And it came to pass!
