Riassunto: G.C. "Red" Jones's classic memoir of growing up in rural eastern Kentucky during the Depression is a story of courage, persistence, and eventual triumph. His priceless and detailed recollections of hardscrabble farming, of the impact of Prohibition on an individualistic people, of the community-destroying mine wars of "Bloody Harlan," and of the drastic dislocations brought by World War II are essential to understanding this seminal era in Appalachian history.
About the Author: The G.C. Jones (1913-1988) retired from the construction industry in Florida.

Caudill: "The great qualitty of 'Red" Jone's Growing Up Hard in Harlan County is its authenticity. The reader will know that this book came from the heart and that the author experienced every sentence he relates." In his preface, Jones says; " Harlan was a small but fast growing coal minimg town. this was a beautiful country, mostly large mountains, narrow valleys, and streams filled with fish. The mountains held plenty of game--deer, bear, wild hogs--just about any kind of game you wanted. It was there for your taking. All of this was to change in a few short years. Harlan County, Kentucky, has had several bloodbaths since progress moved in. I know, and I am going to write all I know about it."
