What My Heart Wants To Tell

"God knew that it would take brave and sturdy people to survive in these beautiful but rugged hills. So He sent us His very strongest men and women." So begins the heartwarming story of Verna Mae and her father, Isom B. ""Kitteneye"" Slone, an extradordinay personal family history set in the hills around Caney Creek in Knott County, Kentucky.

Reviews

"Delightful. It brings back a flood of memories for many."—Ashland Independent

"A story about the lives of mountain people in the old days. If you enjoy hearing older people tell stories, you will find this an engrossing book."—Bowling Green Daily News

"Gone are the days Verna Mae Slone tells about, so this simple memoir is doubly touching—a record of a way of tlife of a proud and upright mountain folk."—Christian Science Monitor

"A plain, interesting, sensitive book. . . . We see a people living contently in unison with a rugged environment which has 'imprisoned and protected them for 150 years.'"—Library Journal

"I cannot imagine a reader who would not be caught and then held by this direct, simply written account. Every page made me see for the first time beyond the cliches of mountain life."—New York Times Book Review

"A remembrance of a close-knit community, and of a hard-working people who still found the time to walk into the valley, listen to bird songs, and smell the flowers. This is definitely a book worth reading."—Register of the Kentucky Historical Society
