Strangers aren't well received in the Mutton Hollow neighborhood of the Ozarks. But there was something different about this old gentleman. The cut of his clothes revealed he was obviously from the world beyond the ridges. He carried himself with the unconscious air of one long used to power and influence. His face was marked deeply by pride - pride of birth, of intellect, of culture - but there was more, the countenance of one fairly staggering under a burden of disappointment and grief. No one knew his past, or why he came to the hollow. But his quiet presence was soon to be felt by every family in Mutton Hollow. Download and start listening now!

    " My grandmother wanted me to read this way back when I was in high school, but I just didn't have time to read then. It was fun to get into their way of talking and a very good story more than I thought it would have, given the title. "

    " Not much like the John Wayne movie of the same name. I got this off Librivox, and the reader, Emily Jarmard, was so perfect (like Cherry Jones reading the Laura Ingalls Wilder series) that I nearly gave the book 3 stars. Her voice *is* Sammy. And there were things I liked about the book; the setting, the character of the handicapped boy, the simple language - but there was just too much sentimentality for me. For those of you who like a little sentiment, though, and an old-fashioned mountain story - I recommend the Librivox audio version. "

    " Although I have this placed on the "movie or tv show based on book" shelf its actually a Play or rather Live Drama which is shown in Branson, Missouri. "

    " Apparently this author was so great, so I picked this book because out of the ones I saw, it seemed like the best choice for my taste. But it was written in 1907, so expect the level of writing as novels at that point were like; I've read various strange books like it at my grandparents' house and so on. Except that those books were better than this one. So I'm wondering why everyone loves it so much. With nothing particularly objectionable in the plot, and being poorly written (add in the prejudices of people, or at least authors, back then), how does this book get so many points from the world of today, with the rage seeming to be excellent writing, and wild subjects? I'm not seeing it. "
