Congratulations to Kristie Kendall, frequent contributor of historical articles to The Piedmont Virginian, on the release of her first book, These Hills Were Home.
“Well, it’s official. My dream of becoming an author has finally come true. Proud to share with everyone “These Hills Were Home.” A huge thanks to those who helped make this possible, including Tom Kendall, Judy Case Kendall, Potomac Appalachian Trail Club (PATC), Piedmont Environmental Council, Larry Lamb and too many others to list here. This is a tribute to the mountain families of the Blue Ridge … may they never be forgotten.”
