Abstract:

"Don't Go Up Kettle Creek is a historical portrayal of a river and the people who made their living along its banks and tributaries. Drawing upon the personal recollections and oral traditions of longtime residents, William Lynwood Montell describes a century and a half of life in the Upper Cumberland." "Montell organized his material according to the topics that dominated his tape-recorded conversations with residents of the area - farming, logging and rafting, steamboating, the Civil War - topics that the people themselves saw as important in their history. In reconstructing this past, the author also illuminates the relationship between geographic and economic factors in the region; the prolonged effects of a cataclysmic event, the Civil War, on this isolated area; and the impact of modernization, in the form of "hard" roads and cheap, TVA-supplied electricity, on the traditional ways of the people."--Jacket.
