The Tired Country Smiles: A Quilt of Mountain Memories by Nola Pease VanderMeer - SIGNED

  • Sale
  • Regular price $25.00

Nola Pease (1893-2001) was a nurse in Leslie County BEFORE the Frontier Nursing Service set up there! After marrying Sam VanderMeer, she moved with him to Breathitt County where their Morris Fork  Ministries became a much-appreciated and substantial service organization. She retired to Berea late in her life, I remember her, walking on the sidewalks when she was in her nineties. It is hard to find a more compelling missionary memoir than this one.

Detroit: Harlo Press, 1983. 237 pages. Hardback in dust jacket.
