The Story

| Chpt. 1 - Childhood | Chpt. 2 - The Transition Years | Chpt. 3 - Lexington |


The Appalachian region is unique in both its geography and culture. The mountains themselves are among the oldest and most beautiful anywhere in the world, with dense forests of pine and abundant springs and rivers. Originally a barrier to the "westward expansion" of early immigrants within the US, it became the home to a large wave of Irish, Scottish and English settlers, who brought many aspects of their culture along with them. Due to the difficulty in traversing the terrain, the culture grew and has retained many of its roots, including its music and art, as well as a strong commitment to family and community. It is within this setting, on the family farm near the tiny community of West Liberty, in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky, that this story begins.
