    OT: The OTHER KY writer Martin is always talking about.

    Not Wendell Berry. Who can help me figure this out? Martin often mentions the Kentucky writer who was a lawyer and wrote stories from his life up in the hills. I think he talked about him in the CiRCE Contemplation of Home talks (which are superb, btw) called "Domus Without Domesticity" and "A Place on Earth."

    Thanks in advance!

    Jesse Stuart wasn't a lawyer.

    Maybe Harry Caudill?

      Caudill might be the guy--folklore and oral history sounds right.

        Wait! Jesse Stuart "The Thread that Runs So True" was from KY? That book informed my father's lifelong vocation as educator. Holy smokes! That is a cool connection. (adding Jesse Stuart books to 2019 reading list)

        Martin also referred to Billy C. Clark during the Martin/Tanya talk on reading choices to impact your homeschool.

          This link says Clark & Stuart are second cousins!
