In The Backwoods of Nowhere by Nancy Blankenship Owen


A bold glimpse into the life of Alma Cross Owen; a remarkable woman of her time. Born in 1910, in rural Davidson County, North Carolina, the fifth of nine children, daughter of poor sharecroppers, Alma shares her amazing life with warmth and adventure. After surviving childhood in the primitive style of the times, she married and gave birth to eleven children.
Listen, while Alma resurrects now forgotten times and places, as she shares with vivid description the everyday life, folklore, hardships and customs of the early 1900s.
The beauty of this book is in the voice of the book—Alma's voice. Alma tells her story with a warmth that leaves you laughing at times and at other times holding a tissue to your eyes.
