Great interview. I love these old stories.

Tipper: What a fun interview. I remember being lost in the mountains and the fear that occurs. feeling and when you realize you know where you are relief washes over you.

Very enlightening interview Tipper. He's right; everyone's culture is fading and will disappear in our fast paced, throw away world if people like Marshall (and you) don't record it for us.

Hope you and your family have a very happy and healthy new year.

Hi Tipper, I love the old stories..and so few are telling them anymore..pretty soon our stories will be the old ones.:)

Hmmm... That name seems familiar. I may have to check out the book. He sounds like an interesting character.

Hey Tipper, I bet Marshall is a very interesting person to talk to. I enjoyed the story about his being lost in the woods.

Thank you again, Tipper. Loved the stories.

A lovely interview, Tipper!

Kudos to Marshall McClung for maintaining Appalachia's wonderful and rich heritage! :))

He is absolutely correct there is information that is slipping away forever.
Thank God for the people like you and Marshall McClung helping to preserve this precious history and tradition!

Tipper what a fine job you do bringing this to us...you should have your own little paper!

Have I told you I listen to Shady Grove every time I come over :) My husband is growing to love it too...

Tipper, I so love how you love your land and its heritage. Thank you for inviting me into a love affair with your dear Appalachia.

Wonderful and interesting interview! Have a wonderful New Year! blessings,Kathleen

Hi, Tipper. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas.

Mr. McClung sounds like an interesting person. It's people like that I like to sit on the front porch and chat with.
Thanks, Tipper!

Tipper,great posting,thank you for visiting me today.I like your site.

Hello Tipper, I enjoyed reading your intrview with Marshall McClung and reading his story.

Marshall has an essay about growing up in Graham County that will be included iN ECHOES ACROSS THE BLUE RIDGE Stories: Essays, and Poems by Writers Living in and Inspired by the Southern Appalachian Mountains, Winding Path Publishig in spring 2010.

Sounds like a really good book, Tipper! Thanks for letting us know about it!

It's wonderful that people like Marshall are writing down all these stories and helping to preserve the Appalachian heritage. I try to do the same in my novels, with stories folks have told me but alas! it'll always be as an outsider looking in.

Nice interview...quite the journey!

Thank you for sharing.
