having read both of Marilyn's books I can highly recommend them to any child of the 50's & 60's. they make you re-live your youth and if you have any conncention with the Kitts Hill-Ironton Area you will know almost every name in her first book "Applachian Childhood". She is a talented and truthful writer and these books would make a fantastic gift for the reader on you list. I read them both and laughed, the cried a little as I morned my lost childhood. Just wish the kids of today could experience the things we did!

The Perfect Moonshine

Jess Young ran off an especially good batch of moonshine, so he gave his good buddy Bill Gouge a quart of it. Sometime later, Jess ran into his friend and asked him how he liked it. "That licker was just perfect." "What do you mean?" asked the moonshiner. "Well, if it were any better, you wouldn't have give it to me, and if it were any worse, I couldn't have drunk it."
