This is a book of short stories with historical West Virginia settings, some based on local legends, that together illuminate the West Virginia frontier. The author, Shon Butler, grew up in an outdoors family and has been a life-long hunter. A forester by profession, he makes authentic period clothing from the furs of the animals he hunts – sometimes with a long rifle.
