    I've read Between the Flowers and Dollmaker. Both are masterworks and both brought me to tears--especially Dollmaker which is one of the most heart-wrenching tales I have ever read and some of the most powerful prose. Compared to Dollmaker, Hunter's Horn is a quiet, more understated st...

    This is a wonderful book of Americana set in the hill country of Kentucky in the 1930s and 40s. Great color and characters... nearly an epic but it is really a microcosm of a culture seen through a family and its travails. For southern literature fans, check this out. It is a rare fin...

    This is the book John Steinbeck would have written if he was a feminist and a better writer. It's an American masterpiece. I found it to be engaging and flawless from beginning to end. How did it fall out of the public consciousness? ...

    Harriette Arnow writes about America's Appalachia during the 40s in a singular way. I had mixed feelings about the book, however. It built slowly...in fact one wonders through almost the entire first half, where the story is going. Dragging as it did, I almost set it aside at times. Ar...

    I am having a Very Hard Time with this Very Depressing Book!! It's a bad time for me to read this, but after reading The Dollmaker I thought I would. give it a try. Extremely Depressing so far & Not what I need to read! Very Primitive & Misogynistic!! Glad I did Not need to go...

    set in rural KY (not clear where) Nunn Ballew is a simple farmer who loves to hunt fox with his hounds, at the expense of the farm and large family. This novel is the 2nd in a series of 3 novels, though I didn?t know that the three were part of a series originally. Very, very descrip...

    This was the first book that my late uncle introduced me to. He was American and he loved American literature - a love engendered in him by his father who was a high-school teacher. Hunter's Horn brings home the grim, grimmer than grim reality of poverty and inequality in American soci...

    A masterwork of Americana. This is the saga of a Kentucky Hill Country family in the years around the Great Depression and World War II. A story of obsession, poverty, but also hope and recovery. The amount of detail into the daily lives of people who are essentially American peasants...
