James Watt Raine provides eyewitness accounts of mountain speech and folksinging, education, religion, community, politics, and farming. In a conscious effort to dispel the negative stereotype of the drunken, slothful, gun-toting hillbilly prone to violence, Raine presents positive examples from his own experiences among the region's native inhabitants. For anyone interested in Appalachia, The Land of Saddle-bags provides a fascinating portrait of a time and place long gone.

"First published in 1924, The Land of the Saddle-Bags provides a unique and timeless study of Appalachia and its people." -- The Bourbon Times
