Summary, etc.:
"This is an improbable but true adventure story written by an 18th century liberal who found himself to be the owner of an entire town in rural southern Indiana. The town, ironically enough named "Story", is on the northern fringe of hill country, an area settled primarily by Germans who built towns and breweries along the mighty Ohio River, and Scotch-Irish, who pioneered inland, establishing a church at every crossroad, and a still in every holler. Topographically, ethnically, and culturally, this area sets itself apart from the rest of Indiana. It is a land of churches, caves, limestone quarries, manufactured homes, Harley Davidson rallies, Dixie flags, meth labs and gun stores, and it is called Kentuckiana."--Provided by publisher.
