May Justus: Tennessee’s Mountain Jewel

May Justus writes about the folk in the Tennessee mountains—people she knows and loves. Most of the glad and sad adventures of her ‘book children’ are rooted in her own experiences as a little girl. For example, her childhood home was a cabin very much like Matt’s and Glory’s in ‘The Cabin on Kettle Creek.’ “I don’t do research for my books. I write from memory, about things my parents and my grandparents told me,” Miss Justus once told a reporter.
