Mammy: A Term of Endearment    I have a new novel I titled, Mammy: A Term of Endearment. Mammy is a fictional story of the slavery of a black woman who after being freed became my father’s mammy. Some feel the word Mammy is a racial term, but my father considered it a term of endearment.    It’s a story of the discrimination many blacks and poor whites still face today, not only in the south but also in the north. It is a story of love, hate, romance, and humor.    Included in the novel are…See More

Finding a great book beyond the in-crowd mainstream

A new way to find great new booksby Rob Neufeld            I keep searching for ways to be as open as possible to great books as they come out.  It’s not easy because: 1) our guides—publishers and reviewers—follow certain channels, comparable to radio playlists, to stay smart; and 2) a random approach is impractical.            Readers’ online reviews help, but there’s too much; I need a filter, based partly on authority.  I could ask people in person—and that’s pretty interesting.  Rarely do…See More

"Us versus Them" does not help fight against racism; worsens sectionalism

“Us versus them” is not good historyby Rob Neufeld             Writing about history and the complex lives that play out within it does not sell as well as team spirit, especially in this age of clicks and likes.            I recently confronted this truth when I wrote my article last week about the minds of our leaders in 1851. The word “slavery” was added to the headline to alert people to its relevance.  Seeing that term connected people to a cause they felt strongly about, particularly in…See More

Appalachian Writers

I first met Charles Fletcher over a year ago-I can't remember how we met for sure if it was through the Blind Pig or maybe through The Read on WNC. But it didn't take us long to figure out we had much in common. We both shared a great love for Western NC and East TN-the mountains-the culture-the traditions-and most of all the people. As often happens when you make new friends-we…

Tipper,

Hey - thank you so much for your kind comment! I do love photography and plan to post a lot more of my stock photos. I glanced at your blog and plan to give it a longer look when I can. I too love our mountain culture - and one of the things is bluegrass music. I also write about the area - I'm primarily a writer, not a photog, with journalism degrees from a couple of colleges. If you get a chance, read "The First of December" in U Chicago's lit mag. It's a hitch-hiking story from the 60s, set in Pisgah and on I-40. Also, my novel, THE MONEY TREE, is a chase set on Green River. You can read the first four chapters for free from my Kindle page at Amazon. You don't need a Kindle e-reader - just download the app for your omputer right from the page. I'd love to hear what you think about it.

Thanks again,

Sam

*** I'm pleased you liked the Nantahala: Land of the Noonday Sun video made in, I think, 1999 . . . Lance Holland and I didn't know what we were doing but we went at it like demented savages . . . fortunately our videographer, Ron Rhuel, now deceased, did know what he was doing . . . we're not ashamed of it

Hi Tipper. I was just enjoying your page here and can't figure out the picture of slices of squash on the kitchen counter with a string going across them. What is that? Do you string them up to dry them or something?

Tipper, I'm afraid I have trouble finding my way around The Read. I don't have the time to spend trying to learn all I should know to use it properly. One day I'll spend a few hours and see if I can figure it out.
Love all your posts. They are delightful.
