"... A Right Good People"

A Right Good People" were originally published in the Charlotte Observer, the largest newspaper in the Carolinas in the 1970s. These stories were written with the intention of illustrating the heritage of the Appalachian people and letting them speak about their culture and traditions for themselves.
