    1. This has what I'm always looking for in stories about Kentucky, especially Eastern Kentucky, and that's a truthfulness and honesty in the people, the places, the culture, the landscape. Chris knows his mountains, and anyone who enjoys strong writing with a strong understanding of the culture contained therein would do good to pick this collection up.

    2. All the stories are wonderful, skillful, and worth reading. I had the most visceral reaction (to The Lost Dog) I've ever had to a written work - my first thought after reading the story was that it didn't say anything, but then immediately I was flooded with memories from my childhood that mirrored the story, and began to get choked up (something I don't often do, especially to the extreme I did) thinking about the fact that somebody else understood, perfectly, those feelings. I just had to stop [...]

    3. As a former student of Holbrook's, I find his true-to-life portrayals of modern Appalachia inspiring. This collection contains different stories for different tastes, touches on issues that are only now making their way into the national conciousness (like mining in the community), and is a great read. The interesting characters, their subtle choices and reactions, and the eastern Kentucky environment make for some very good reads. If you like short fiction set in Kentucky, pick up this book.

    4. Interesting set of short stories of peoples lives in Appalachia. Most very sad.Also gives a real picture of the process of strip mining and its negative effects on the environment and the people who live in the area.

    5. I enjoyed all these stories. They stirred up the full variety of feelings I have about Eastern Kentucky and home.

    6. Expertly crafted stories. Quite traditional, though, and my current tastes are for stories that are edgier and/or push language in some way.
