I’m happy and honored to share that writer and poet Kathryn Stripling Byer has offered advance praise for KEOWEE VALLEY. She writes:
“To the stellar list of Appalachian fiction writers we can now add Katherine Scott Crawford for her impressive Keowee Valley. Crawford manages to interweave the historical and the personal in this novel, and, perhaps more important, gives voice to the landscape in which this story takes place. Well-grounded and well-narrated, this novel will take its place in the library of any reader who cares about Appalachian literature.”
Byer is the author of Wildwood Flower and Black Shawl, and the 2005-2009 Poet Laureate of North Carolina. And if you’ve not read her gorgeous work, you should.
