Great Book!!!!

I am researching relatives that lived in the same area as described in this book. Rick Bragg does an excellent job telling the history of his family. My Mom is 88 and said that his book on his Mom "All Over but the Shouting" was better than "Gone with the Wind".


good book

This book was good ,but not my favorite Rick Bragg. Always informative...have read most of his writings now.


something to bragg about

by patch315 on Jan 1, 2009

this book helps you understand the deep south and the social and economic pressures that make the southern appalachian region so different from the rest of the country. all wrapped up with a very interesting story about a poor southern family. a great read
