On Viney's Mountain
Audience: 6th Grade - 8th Grade
In the Cumberland Mountains of Tennessee, Viney Walker, 16, lives with her brother and sister in a small cabin on a small farm that barely keeps them alive. They are used to hard work and long days. Viney has one hobby that she does well and that keeps her loving her surroundings. She weaves colorful blankets rugs and dress material on a homemade loom with yarn she has sheared from the sheep and dyed herself. When English settlers come to the mountain to start taking down trees to build a 'utopia' town, Viney has trouble with the concept. She is sixteen and not married which is not the norm in the 1880's. Her sister is thrilled with the new Englishmen. This historical fiction and light romance book is for those that enjoy action and a not-so-happy ending. You will want more.
