First published over 20 years ago, this West Virginia classic is available once again. It is the story of Mammy Jane, a 17-year old girl who marries a widower with five children. It s an amazing story of romance, hardship, devotion, hard work, grief, and love of family. The epic spans several generations and gives an accurate account of life in West Virginia during and after the Civil War. When Jane s new husband goes to fight in the war, she is left to run the household. Starting with next to nothing, Jane teaches herself what she needs to know to raise a family, build a home, and eventually become a prosperous landowner. The book includes authentic and humorous remedies and sayings. It explains traditional rituals of the day including burials, birthings, and weddings. This is a story you will never forget.
