Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 covers 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.
