Summary "In this moving collection of short stories, Smith conveys his passionate attention to the natural world, his ear for mountain dialect and wit (both a century ago and today), his love of horses and his conviction that, even if violence is inevitable, it must be treated with dignity, that even those who resort to force on behalf of their community must bear the responsibility and carry the scars. ... Although these Appalachian stories are, in genre terms, akin to mysteries, it is the greater Mystery that Smith's richly rendered characters pursue as they lead the reader through the shadows in search of the light."-- Cover p.
