One of the Best Books a Southerner Could Read This Year: 'The Blue Lady of Sycamore Hill'

It is not a long book.  It does not contain intricate theories of government.  But it is remarkable, and this is because it shows what a great nation truly is: the lived faith of the people, their close ties to the land and weather, the language, the sufferings experienced in common.  Southerners will see many things they have in common with the Lemko people, and, if we are wise, we might also perceive through their experiences how we can endure our present oppression and how we can reach our goal of freedom.
