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:
