About this Item

Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 245p. Audience: General/trade. Out of print for more than 20 years, this biographical novel tells the real story that doesn't change much over the decades: the coal mining life and organized labor conflicts, set in the Cumberland Mountains of Tennessee. The authentic Dolly Hawkins (later Cooper) voices the days and nights of herself a younger member of coal mining generations, descendents of Daniel Boone era pioneers; she speaks of her life, her loves. She is part of the tradition where women serve as both the spiritual and physical strength for others. Good. No dust jacket as issued. Clean text pages. Moderate cover and edge wear; spine creasing. Minor corner bumps. Bookseller Inventory # Alibris.61410001995

About this title


This novel offers a powerful account of family life and labor conflicts, told through the eyes of a tough, resilient Appalachian woman who is, according to Richard Wright, "one of the most impressive proletarian characters in our literature." Daughter of the Hills exposes the economic conditions of the working class and the scarcity of opportunities for working-class women, but also tells the story of a loving marriage that endures despite severe hardships.

About the Author:

MYRA PAGE (1897 - 1994), pseudonym of Dorothy Markey, is the author of three novels: Daughter of the Hills, Gathering Storm, and Moscow Yankee.

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
