About this title


Beyond Dark Hills was originally written by Jesse Stuart as a graduate school assignment at Vanderbilt University. Assigned to write an 18 page personal narrative, he turned in 322 pages about a seemingly simple farm boy and his family. His professor said, "I have been teaching for forty years and I have never read anything so...beautiful, tremendous and powerful..."

Stuart shares with the reader all his youthful anxieties as he prepares for life and then ventures forth on his own. He freely shares his frustrations and successes, as he examines the forces that mold and shape him into a worldfamous author and educator.

From the Publisher:

These ageless, universal experiences, told as they can only be told by a vibrant, precocious young voice will evoke vivid remembrances for the reader. For the young reader who has yet to experience the transition from childhood to adulthood, this book can be an inspiring guide. For older readers, it may be a beautiful trip down memory lane.

For old and young alike, this book will lend inspiration, hope, desire and courage to make each life count.
