Voices of the Apalachicola by Faith Eidse

Book Description

One of the main water resources for Florida, Alabama, and Georgia, the Apalachicola River begins where the Chattahoochee and Flint rivers meet at Lake Seminole and flow unimpeded for 106 miles, through the red hills and floodplains of the Florida panhandle into the Gulf of Mexico. "Voices of the Apalachicola" features more than thirty individuals who have lived out their entire lives in this region, including the last steamboat pilot on the river system, sharecroppers who escaped servitude, turpentine workers in Tate's Hell, sawyers of "old-as-Christ" cypress, beekeepers working the last large tupelo stand, and a Creek chief descended from a 200-year unbroken line of chiefs.

Books By Author Faith Eidse

Unrooted Childhoods by Faith Eidse Unrooted Childhoods, Paperback (January 2004)

With their identities built piece by cultural piece, the authors of these stories recall the benefits and the pain of growing up without the chance to put down roots. They are unrooted children who grow up without having the sense of home and often without knowing who they are.
