This is a little-known, but meaningful and splendid novel about a protagonist who was an activist in the 1930, but has been settled in on a small farm in the shadow of Walden's Ridge between Knoxville and Chattanooga for eight years when the Congressional witch-hunters hunting Communists come after her!  The author published a previous novel in 1950.
