Jim Wayne Miller (1936--1996) was a prolific writer, a revered teacher and scholar, and a pioneer in the field of Appalachian studies.

In Every Leaf a Mirror, Morris Allen Grubbs and Mary E
Home and beyond : an anthology of Kentucky short stories by Morris Allen Grubbs( )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Morris A. Grubbs has sifted through vintage classics and little-known gems to assemble this collection of forty stories. In subtle and profound ways the stories challenge and overturn accepted stereotypes about the land their authors call home, whether by birth or by choice." "Arranged by order of their first appearance in print, the stories form a diverse gathering as well as a unified story cycle of novelistic scope. Separately and collectively, they reflect a universal and a particularly Kentuckian cycle of embracing and departing, the journey from rootedness to rootlessness and back again, and the individual's and culture's love affair both with home and with the world beyond its borders."--Jacket
Conversations with Wendell Berry by Wendell Berry( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1960, Wendell Berry (b. 1934) has produced one of the most substantial and consistently thematic bodies of work of any modern American writer. In more than fifty books in various genres-novels, short stories, poems, and essays-he has celebrated a life lived in close communion with neighbors and the earth and has addressed many of our most urgent cultural maladies. His collections of essays urge us to think and act responsibly as members of a community-both human and natural. Volumes of his poems seek to wed us to nature and realign our vision with its mysteries. His growing Port William cycle of novels offers us a fictional model for understanding, for compassion, and for living in constant regard for others. Conversations with Wendell Berry gathers for the first time interviews with the writer, ranging from 1973 to 2006, including one never before published. For readers acquainted with Berry's work, this volume offers insights available nowhere else. It reveals succinctly the main currents of his life's work. What emerges is a citizen-writer profoundly affected by cultural crises at home and in the world
