Upon receiving this book I could immediately tell it was some sort of abridged version. The original text contains 20 chapters - this one contains only 17. Wish I had noticed the page count before ordering, as this book is 180 pages of large print, all other available editions are over 500 pages. There is no publisher listed, the summary on the back of the book (listed above as the book description) is complete nonsense and doesn't apply to this text at all, and the last page bears a mark reading only "Made in the USA/Lexington, KY/01 December 2013". What sort of frankenbook is this? Where did it come from? I'm pretty sure this is another shining example of how the internet is slowly making us all dumber. AND, when I went to file a return, Amazon kindly informed me that this book is only eligible for a replacement - I can't get my money back to spend on a reputable printing. Spend the extra bucks for a legitimate copy of this treasure - Amazon, you're ruining everything.
This work is plum full of powerful truth that still rings true in modern times. I spoke with my grandfather before he passed about questions I had about our mountain ancestors. He answered honestly and bluntly. He told about how our family either proudly supported the union during the civil war or deserted from the Confederates as they "didn't have no dog in that hunt". He talked about running from the revenuers on Saturday and sitting with them in church on Sunday. Feuds with neighbors and in-laws over the smallest slight. Kephart has confirmed so many of his tales and rememberings. I am proud to be descended from such strong people. (I'm also proud to be little bit more educated and world-exposed)
The last few chapters get a bit verbose and unending compared to the exciting yards about the shiners and hunters in the beginning. Again I am amazed at how similar today's mountain folk are to the descriptions given in this 100 year old book
Though written a century ago, the author's wit and knowledge wrought from a classical education shine through, providing a rich and colorful window into the lives those who populated the Great Smoky Mountains at that time and before. He vividly describes the bear hunts he experienced with the remarkably hardy men, the lives of women and children, the historic source of the region's population, and more things of interest than I can describe here. All is not peaches and cream -- while there is much to admire in these folks, there also is a dark side well described by a person who lived among them and saw it all first hand, If you have an interest in the Appalachian area and its people, get this book. I doubt there is any other that will provide a look into their lives and culture more successfully.
