ON AGATE HILL.
Edition: First printing.
Chapel Hill, NC: Algonquin Books, (2006.) dj. Hardcover first edition - Historical novel by this award winning Southern writer: "Molly Petree, orphaned by the Civil War, is by her own definition 'a spitfire and a burden. I do not care. My family is a dead family, and this is not my home, for I am a refugee girl.' Raised in the ruins of a once prosperous plantation on Agate Hill in North Carolina, she's a refugee who has no interest in self-pity. . . Spanning half a century, Lee Smith's portrait of a fiery Southern woman recalls the South from Reconstruction to the Roaring Twenties and, in the process, gives us Molly Petree, living and breathing, gripping the reader's arm as the story unfolds." 356 pp. ISBN: 1565124529.
