Ships from Warehouse, Usually in 1-8 Days


Author Nancy Withington Bell shares rich authentic stories from 24 women who bravely made a move to a new region. In the mountain hollows of Tennessee, the newly arrived "girls"-young, suburban women from 15 states-supported each other, learning country ways and how to produce their own water, warmth, and food. Fleeing urban consumer culture and the social strife of the 1970s, they learned from the locals, became strong women, and formed a lasting community.

Reading these stories, you will laugh, cry and share their raw emotions as they grow as a community.
