    "My husband is a native of the Kentucky mountains, a true hater of poetry and all things literary. Without my knowledge, he read this little book and loved it. He shook it in my face and said, 'You ... better write a good review of this book because it's SPECIAL.' He's right. This book is special in so many ways I can't express adequately in a review."
