Send a message to the author
Pilot, Virginia

Every summer, Camelia McNeil Elliott, spent a month with her beloved grandparents in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. While visiting Mabry Mill’s rotating waterwheel, Elliott imagined Lizzie Mabry grinding white corn for customers in 1908. Inspired, she wrote stories about Appalachian mountaineers and her family, such as her great-great grandmother’s incarceration in a corn crib by Civil War soldiers, her grandparent’s 1917 elopement in a horse drawn carriage during a treacherous mountain ice storm, and her father’s jail house shenanigans at the Floyd County Courthouse. Elliott’s book tells captivating and intriguing stories of Virginia history, culture, traditions, and everyday living common to all mountain families.
