Heathen Valley, ''the valley that forgot God,'' is hidden in the shadows of the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, far from anything that could be confused with civilization. Violent, carnal, without law, education, church or even gainful employment, the ''slope people'' live in a raw, natural state. Though the time is the mid-19th century, the characters are almost as primitive as cavemen. Presented by the Philadelphia Festival Theater For New Plays.

Romulus Linney 17 Short Plays. Heathen Valley", adapted from his first novel, was performed in 1987 as a part of the Philadelphia Festival for New Plays. Linney is a playwright with an uncanny ear for a wide variety of dialog styles. Each play, whether set in the Ozarks, medieval Spain, Japan, Stalinist Russia, a sleazy San Francisco bar, or a nursing. The work, which is set in the mountains of North Carolina, was staged very simply with fiddles and dulcimers providing a musical background and the actors evoking the landscape.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Linney was able to capture the elegant yet primordial lifestyles of the Appalachian people, particularly in Heathen Valley (aka Valle Crucis). This book was a collection of stories (somewhat fictional) from the church histories of the Valle Crucis mission in western North Carolina. It is told in 4 parts during the 1850s, where a bishop from New England and a real mountain man try to transform the valley. It was exciting and interesting to read about the characters that Linney so delicately created. Each character had extensive amounts of layers that created a complex world in a simple community.

Freakin' coolest play ever. I loved it so much. So much drama. A bishop, a missionary, and an orphan try to help a group of heathens become better and have God in their life. They start to find religion, but not in the exact manner as the bishop would hope. After a while he gets upset and changes the church so that it is more Catholic and the town does not approve of this and they all go back to being Heathens again. It is a play about friendship, religion, betrayl, and finding your home.

"If I had a home, I would never leave it. I would keep it with me, always."

If you are interested in the early American protestant church, Appalachian history, America in the 1830's, or a good, gripping story with real people, this is a great book. The author reconstructs a bishop's project of building a mission in an area that has forgotten God - folks who's grandparents fled the revolutionary war and became heathens. The story reminds me of "The Education of Little Tree" but with teeth and with a strong message.
