A unique and personal book bound for its own kind of immortality. Head o’ W-Hollow has a permanent if modest historical value. Jesse Stuart has a “rattrap memory” for turns of speech, and he has given a socio-historical record of daily life in his remote world — now so much less remote and more changed.
By Jesse Stuart
