Inhaltsangabe: In her first book My Journey to Appalachia, Ellie Wilson introduced us to the world of the John C. Campbell Folk School as seen through her eyes ? those of a recent Vassar graduate in a new place far from New York. Farming and a bit of adventure appealed to me. Her one-year employment at the school blossomed into a romance with her future husband and a lifelong passion for rural life in Western North Carolina.

After that book was published, Ellie was asked repeatedly, "What happened next?" My Life in Brasstown is the rest of the story ? a more detailed account of her life, home, and community in Brasstown, North Carolina, through the forty years following 1942.

Über den Autor: Eleanor Lambert grew up on Long Island and graduated from Vassar College in 1941. Her sense of adventure led her to leave the conventional society of her youth to take a job at the John C. Campbell Folk School in the tiny Appalachian community of Brasstown, North Carolina. After World War II, Ellie married Monroe Wilson, with whom she had fallen in love at the Folk School, and in 1949, the Wilsons bought a dairy farm in Brasstown. During their marriage of fifty years, they raised four children: Danny, Anne, John, and Florence.

Ellie honed her listening and writing skills while employed as a teacher, social worker, and psychiatric counselor. She received a master?s degree in non-school counseling in 1979. Her spirit of advocacy led to her involvement in establishing several community service agencies. In 1955, she and Monroe were founding members of Hayesville?s Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd. Ellie?s enduring sense of wonder and love of God make her a joyful student of the Bible.

Now semi-retired, she lists among her hobbies "learning new skills and appreciating them in others," no doubt an indispensable quality for a grandmother of six. Ellie attributes her love of people and of life to having interacted with a wide variety of people through her many activities in Western North Carolina.
