From there the North and South Forks meander through Ashe County until they meet near the Virginia border and continue through a corner of Alleghany County before turning north again into Virginia and West Virginia and on to the Ohio. Settlers came to the fertile bottom lands along the New River during the 18th and 19th centuries and many of their descendents still live there today." "In this collection of oral histories, 33 people in Ashe, Alleghany, and Watauga counties - most of whom are in their 70s, 80s, and 90s - share memories of their lives and work on the New River and their hopes for its future. They tell of floods, snows, sickness, the Great Depression, education, religion, quilting, weaving and other crafts, and the fight against a large power company that planned to flood thousands of acres of land. They also recall how the river has been central to their lives in providing food, transportation, and recreation."--BOOK JACKET." ;
