Recent release ‘Growing Up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia’ from Covenant Books author Ivy Corbin is a historic look at the secluded lives of the farm people of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Corbin provides a personal look at the hardships faced by the poverty-stricken mountain families of the Shenandoah.

Ivy Corbin, a proud wife who worked on the farm she grew up on at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, has completed her new book “Growing Up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia”: a close look at the lives of the Blue Ridge Mountain residents.

Corbin shares, “This book tells the true story of the people who had made their homes for many generations in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, the hardships and sorrows the mountain people endured for being poor and secluded for living their way of life in the mountains. They were put out of their homes and put off their land to make way for the Shenandoah National Park. Memories linger in their minds of days gone by—what it was like not to have enough food on the table, hard work every day, thinking what the next day might bring. The history that has been left behind by the mountain people should never be forgotten. Oh, what secrets those Blue Ridge Mountains hold.”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Ivy Corbin’s new book reveals facts and secrets of the little-known lives of the poverty-stricken people who lived in isolation in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
