Riassunto: Appalachian Daughter-35987Not since the Dust Bowl days of the 30's have so many residents of one area of our great country migrated to another in search of a better way of life. The sturdy ancestors of this group had followed Daniel Boone through the Cumberland Gap a century or more before and were ready to follow their leaders to a new life elsewhere. Appalachian Daughter was written to chronicle the exodus of a number of leading families from the Pine and Black Mountain areas of Eastern Kentucky. Collectively, these mountains are known simply as the "Cumberlands" and form a section of the Appalachian Mountain Range.After the Second World War, the area was so poverty stricken many of the mountaineers left their homes for fertile Southern Indiana farms or went on to cities such as Chicago, Detroit and Cincinnati in search of factory jobs. Coal mining was the only job available in Eastern Kentucky. When the mine operators refused to budge on employee welfare or safety issues, the leaders decided to abandon the only profession they knew and start their lives anew in other places.This story tells of one of those families who migrated and their struggles for acceptance. It attempts to show the impact of this migration on Indiana and other states. It also shows the dismal prospects of those left behind, prospects that would require fifty years to mend. The area would not heal until it had produced, reared and educated new leaders to take the place of those who left.This story is about my family. I hope you enjoy reading of our exploits.

About the Author: Appalachian Daughter-35987Mrs. Ayers is a retired self-educated newspaper journalist.She spent twenty-one years writing for and managing a weekly newspaper in central Indiana. She won many state and national press awards along the way for her stories. In her early years she worked as an executive secretary and computer programmer. In 1972, having decided to become a journalist, she quit her secretary job and set out to become a writer. Having a good editor helped her immensely and eight days after starting with the newspaper she was named its General Manager. One of her projects involved writing longer stories about people she knew who had died that week. These "Send Offs" became so popular that one older gentlemen asked her repeatedly to write his send off before he died so he could read what she had to say about him. She now lives in beautiful southern Brown County, Indiana with her husband, Mickey, and three little dogs. They have two sons and two grandchildren. She still loves to write stories and interview subjects.
