SummaryWhen a pretty young schoolteacher is charged with murder in 1930's Appalachia, the national press use it as an excuse to sell papers — and to demonize the region, raising social issues that go well beyond the fate of one defendant. Appalachian wise woman Nora Bonesteel is 12-years old, just beginning to come to terms with her gift of the Sight.
