From the Back Cover:

James Watt Raine provides eyewitness accounts of mountain speech and folksinging, education, religion, community, politics, and farming. In a conscious effort to dispel the negative stereotype of the drunken, slothful, gun-toting hillbilly prone to violence, Raine presents positive examples from his own experiences among the region's native inhabitants. For anyone interested in Appalachia, The Land of Saddle-bags provides a fascinating portrait of a time and place long gone.

Review:

"A lively, first-hand account of a Berea College professor's favorable experience with mountain people."―Now & Then

"Will enable modern readers to experience how early-twentieth-century writers viewed the Appalachian region and its people. The foreword, penned by Dwight Billings, is especially outstanding as a modern critique of the work."―Register of the Kentucky Historical Society

"First published in 1924, The Land of the Saddle-Bags provides a unique and timeless study of Appalachia and its people."―The Bourbon Times
