Sarah Beth Childers grew up listening to stories. She heard them riding to school with her mother, playing Yahtzee in her Grannya€™s nicotine cloud, walking to the bowling alley with her grandfather, and eating casseroles at the family reunions she attended every year. In a thoughtful, humorous voice born of Appalachian storytelling, Childers brings to life in these essays events that affected the entire region: large families that squeezed into tiny apartments during the Great Depression, a girl who stepped into a rowboat from a second-story window during Huntingtona€™s 1937 flood, brothers who were whisked away to World War II and Vietnam, and a young man who returned home from the South Pacific and worked his life away as a railroad engineer. Childers uses these family tales to make sense of her personal journey and find the joy and clarity that often emerge after the earth shakes terribly beneath us.Stories from an Appalachian Family Sarah Beth Childers ... For one trip to the grocery store, Granny bundled up in an ancient coat, her gray hair tied up in a crocheted navy head scarf. My mom ... When my mother refused, Granny would stick out her wrinkled hands and lightly push her daughter, growling, a€œTherea#39;s the door.
