About the Author

James Still (1906--2001) was the author of numerous works of fiction and poetry, including River of Earth; From the Mountain, From the Valley: New and Collected Poems; and Chinaberry. His writing has won many awards, including the Marjorie Peabody Waite Award and the O. Henry Memorial Prize.


"Still is a great storyteller. He takes you into the hills, acquaints you with their people, shows you their beauty, lets you hear their sounds. These vignettes of life in the southern Appalachians are an important contribution to the literature of the region." -- Chattanooga Times

"Still is an eavesdropper on the human heart. He doesn't create 'characters' in a story; he is a bright-eyed, keen-eared owl in a thicket, reporting on the human beings he sees and hears.... A marvelous book." -- Lexington Herald-Leader

"James Still offers us the rhythm of the poet's phrasing, the excitement of the word, the expression, that strikes like a little silver hammer, along with an uproarious humor and the lustiness of living of the common man." -- Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, author of The Yearling

"The unprogressive enclaves of Troublesome Creek and Shoal Creek cry out to us what is fundamental about life, and what superfluous.... The marvels here are truly those of art." -- Louisville Courier-Journal
