Sinossi:

"Bloodroot is a perennial wildflower, native to the Appalachian region, that bears a single white flower in early spring. Its root contains a poisonous alkaloid, yet the reddish sap it exudes possesses healing powers. Could any image be more perfect for the mix of pain and pleasure that informs the memoirs of the women in this volume?" "Over the past 150 years, some of the most beautiful and powerful voices in American letters have emerged from this hardscrabble region. In Bloodroot thirty-five of these voices describe Appalachia with poignancy, eloquence, forthrightness, and humor."--BOOK JACKET.
