There was little money available but that made little difference to the boys in Keiffer Holler. Most of the time we were busy working and our leisure time was spent in the beautiful mountains and fishing. Until I was a junior in high school I thought a log cabin in the rural hills of Greenbrier County, a job in a union mine and a four wheel drive vehicle would mean the perfect life.vehicle would mean the perfect life.My story deals with the many twists and turns of leaving the mountains of Appalachia.

Some are sad and some are hilarious. The cultural differences I encountered could be compared to Homers’ account of the Greek, Odysseus. My experiences could never measure up to the Cyclops but there were many challenges along the way. The strong values I gained during my formative years in Appalachia were a major factor guiding me to success throughout my first 76 years of life.
