Description: A memoir of growing up in the mountains of eastern Kentucky, Creeker heralds the arrival of a fresh new voice. Linda Scott DeRosier's humorous yet poignant autobiography is the story of an educated and cultured American woman who came of are in Appalachia and remains unabashedly honest about and proud of her mountain heritage.

Those who wax nostalgic about the beauty of the "old ways" probably never drew lye from ashes to produce a hunk of soap or hoed a hill of corn in a Kentucky August when the air was so wet and heavy you needed gills to breathe. DeRosier has, and she chronicles her life with honesty, wit, and insight.

A tale that begins and ends with family, this is a story not only of accomplishment but of acknowledgment -- of self, relationships, the challenges and consequences of choice, and the impact of the past on the present. It describes an Appalachia of complexity and beauty rarely revealed to outsiders.
