The scapegoat by Mary Lee Settle( Book )

16 editions published between 1980 and 1996 in English and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a novel about casual and heedless acts that often lead to unthinkable results, Mary Lee Settle traces the fall of a West Virginia town that was first made rich by coal, then corrupted and destroyed by it. Set in 1912, the story propels readers with astonishing immediacy to a fateful day in a coal miners' strike in which relatives of the Beulah dynasty, only dimly aware of their blood ties, confront one another on opposing sides of the dispute. Emotions escalate to a frenzy of violence as Mother Jones, leader of the striking miners, calls for action in a community devastated by Southern resignation and by guilt associated with selling out to Eastern investors

The love eaters ; The kiss of kin by Mary Lee Settle( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel that launched Mary Lee Settle's outstanding career, The Love Eaters is an acid satire of bedroom and community tragedy. A wealthy, small-town theatrical group finds itself at the direction of a man whose designs extend beyond the stage. As he begins to lose control, so do his players, revealing appetites they scarcely knew they had. Settle's second novel, the highly acclaimed Kiss of Kin, centers on the funeral and last testament of Anna Mary Passmore. Drawn back to the Southern homeplace, members of the Passmore clan - all of whom nurse visions that the matriarch's bequests will solve their problems - grapple with the various ties that bind them and with the disturbing appearance of an unexpected heir. Published together for the first time, these novels offer compelling tales from Settle's early career

Appalachia : a history of mountains and people( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Home to the oldest mountains on the planet and the richest forests in North America -- within a mosaic of diverse habitats and cultures, Appalachia tells the story of a people struggling to find a true and proper relationship to the natural world ... Time and Terrain begins the tale -- the birth of the mountains, the evolution of the forest, the arrivals of the Native-Americans [sic] and the Europeans. Appalachia appears on the map for the first time ... [In] New Green World ... the contrasting attitudes of Native Americans and European settlers toward the mountains and the rich land bring bloodshed, tragedy, and longterm consequences for all forms of life ... [In] Mountain Revolutions ... the American Civil War tears a prospering, agrarian region apart -- politically, economically, and spiritually -- setting the stage for railroads, land buyers and vast, unpredictable change ... Power and Place [shows] the effects of unchecked industrialization -- floods, forest fires, erosion and poverty -- awakening a busy nation to its responsibilities toward the mountains, the forests, the wildlife, and the people"--Containers
