    1 thought on “Granny Dollar

    1. Surprisingly delightful The story is as charming as the woman it's about. At first I thought it was a work by less than polished author. But as the story progressed, I was swept away by the first hand look at American history. Of course, it didn't hurt that my wife grew up on Sand Mountain. I've been to the places this book brings alive. Somehow, this book brings to life events and places, and one old Indian woman.

    2. Loved this book. The subject, Granny Dollar, was a well known figure in northeast Alabama. She lived to be more than 100 years old, and had seen much in her years. This book went through all those things, from her childhood to her death, yet it is a very fast read. Probably because it's so interesting, especially if you love history (as I do). I definitely recommend.

    3. !If you are in the mood for some "down home" good 'ole fireside tales of life "back then"; this is one of the most heart warming stories you will ever find. As for me, I will never forget it!
