Black Shawl by Kathleen Stripling Byer

Book Description

Black Shawl emanates from Kathryn Stripling Byer's fascination with female ballad singers in southern Appalachia, whose voices haunt the mountains still, and from the image of a black net or shawl being dragged over the ground, plumbing the depths, collecting bits and fragments of a woman's life. The singers and storytellers of this collection are struggling to answer the query of the book's epigraph: "What will you make of this?"
