Summary

A story about the American South; how an interracial group of young and old flee Sheridan's burning of the Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War, and settle together in West Virginia.

The story is interwoven with clandestine interracial love affairs and marriages, the miracles and bigotry of old-time religions, corrupt back-hills justice, wars, and the aftermath of wars.

Murders, rapes, and other injustices are often never known by the "law", but are met with heavy vengeance in the quiet of the hills. There is also some humor.

This is a tale of days gone by, but not so far gone that we cannot still get glimpses of them; a down-home story about love, honor, faith, courage, patriotism, and loyalty, that follows the group and their descendants from the early 1800's to the late 1940's.
