From the publisher: “Here is history at its best–a story of the Southern Appalachian people that has been gathered with great affection by a native son and told in poetry and song. Superb photography by Robert Amberg brings the people and the mountains to the words. Mountain Measure is a beautiful book and one all heritage-conscious Americans will be proud to add to their bookshelves. It is at once enjoyable, informative, and healthily nostalgic.” – Salisbury Post “Hulme is a talented poet, but aside from his artistry, he is extremely sensitive to mountain character, has mastery of folk idiom, and presents mountain folk with tenderness and appreciation.” – Cratis Williams
