Anne E Chesky

Author Anne E. Chesky grew up in the Riceville area and began hearing stories of its history as a child in the Riceville Presbyterian Church. While pursing her master's degree at Appalachian State University in Appalachian studies, she began collecting stories from many of the valley's original families. Most of the photographs presented in Images of America: Riceville were collected during these conversations.
