A Cry in the Mist & Other Needmore Valley Tales published August, 2020
Drawn from wondering what others’ lives were like as he walks dirt roads, paddles the rivers and sits in the presence of an old homestead near his Appalachian home, Woodward’s Needmore Tales wander through the last three hundred years of history. He connects us to the special gifts of these mountains, the Cherokee, Irish, ourselves and family through moments of tenacity, surprise, mysticism and humor.
Each of the strong young women in these tales faces a challenge that will have a lasting effect on her life and the lives of those around her. This is Woodward’s first book of published fiction.
