Running On Red Dog Road: And Other Perils of an Appalachian Childhood | Drema Hall Berkheimer | BookLook Bloggers

Running On Red Dog Road is a recollection of childhood memories of growing up in a mining town in West Virginia. The author shares her stories starting around the age of four that she had while living with her grandparents during WWII in the 1940's. Her father died in a mining accident and her mother went off to NY to build air planes, leaving her with her grandparents, brother, and sister. Her best friend is a girl named Sissy; during the story you will wish you were there; the author does a fantastic job of making you feel like you are in the story walking right with her. While reading its nearly impossible not to imagine the scenes, like an old movie playing in your head. I highly suggest this book if you like reading real life based stories...almost like a diary, its written in small chapters that are easy to read and capture your attention to where you don't want to put the book down.
