"[An] appealing record of a simple but fiercely independent life lived in Southern Appalachia."--Washington Post Book World
"The picture we get is of an unworldly woman who nonetheless had world enough and time to live wisely and generously."--New York Times Book Review
"Arie Carpenter is a favorite of Foxfire readers, and here is an entire book of her conversations, transcribed from tapes recorded at her home. Although Aunt Arie died in 1978, at the age of 92, her indomitable spirit is captured forever here in the moving text and pictures."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution
