When I Was Young in the Mountains

By Cynthia Rylant, Diane Goode (Illustrator)

The author affectionately recalls a childhood spent with her family in the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia. Warm family scenes are filled with friendly, happy people. Many of the illustrations drift off into the mountain mist and bring a peacefulness to the recalled pleasures.
