A Chapel Hill book"-Facing . Originally published: 1935. 975. Library of Congress.

Muriel S. Earley Sheppard, writer, was born in Andover, . The book was copiously illustrated with photographs by Mrs. Bayard Wootten of Chapel Hill. the daughter of Florence Eliza Stephens and Crayton I. Earley. In December 1909, when she was eleven, her father had a local printer issue a small volume of poems by her entitled Little Poems by a Little Girl In 1935 her major work, Cabins in the Laurel, was published by The University of North Carolina Press.

In 1928 New York native Muriel Earley Sheppard moved with her mining engineer husband to the Toe River Valley -- an isolated pocket in North Carolina between the Blue Ridge and Iron Mountains. Sheppard began visiting her neighbors and forming friendships in remote coves and rocky clearings, and in 1935 her account of life in the mountains -- Cabins in the Laurel -- was published. The book included 128 striking photographs by the well-known Chapel Hill photographer, Bayard Wootten, a frequent visitor to the area.The early reviews of Cabins in the Laurel were overwhelmingly positive, but the mountain people -- Sheppard's friends and subjects -- initially felt that she had portrayed them as too old-fashioned, even backward. As novelist John Ehle shows in his foreword, though, fifty years have made a huge difference, and the people of the Toe River Valley have been among its most affectionate readers.This new large-format edition, which makes use of many of Wootten's original negatives, will introduce Sheppard's words and Wootten's photography to a whole new generation of readers -- in the Valley and beyond.

A great read for those interested in life in the mountain country of the southeast during the early, mid and late 19th century, with some readings reflecting the early 20th century. But bear in mind the great majority of this story is told by a lady in 1928, whose recollections are mostly about
what was rather than what is.
If you're looking for examples and guides about how things evolved for these folks, this probably isin't the book for you. It is largely a collection of stories related to the author by those who came long before her.

I did like this book although it gets a little draggy. lots of history in this and maps to show what is where today. the Toe river is a beautiful place with some fine fine folks still living there today. they are great neighbors, willing to help out and this OUTSIDER from New York made a place for herself by making friends, learning new ways of doing things. would buy this book again.

Very interesting novel.

Read this book as an adolescent and always wanted my own copy. Re-reading again 40 years later. Love this area of the Appalachians.

A book that I read many years ago and enjoyed. I purchased it because it was not avaiable in my local library for a reread.
