Our Vanishing Heritage
By Fannie Lane Steele
A Little book for my grandchildren and others who would like to keep our heritage alive for theirs. Much of the material for this book is from my memories of growing up in the mountains on our hillside farm in Duncan Gap, and things imparted to me by my parents, aunts and uncles, older siblings and others who lived in and around our community. I realize with each passing day as older people leave us, a little bit of our history dies with them. The customs and ways of mountain living are fast vanishing away, so I call this book, Our Vanishing Heritage.
