“Rooted in the Mountains” Receives Glowing Review on Rural News Site
February 2013: Daily Yonder, a popular national rural news source, shares a glowing review of Rooted in the Mountains, Reaching to the World: Stories of Nursing and Midwifery at Kentucky’s Frontier School, 1939-1989, a book about the first 50 years of Frontier’s graduate school. Reviewer Kelli Haywood shares her thoughts in Daily Yonder on how the book “launches the reader into an amazing history of the Frontier Nursing Service, from the training program and school’s beginnings to its development and evolution, a journey that took passion, ingenuity, and resolve for all involved.”
Haywood not only resides in eastern Kentucky but is also a doula, childbirth educator and women’s and children’s health advocate. Rooted in the Mountains is filled with stories of nurse-midwives who attended births and provided care to families in rural Appalachia, so it is very relevant and close to her heart. Haywood closes her review boasting that Rooted in the Mountains is “an enjoyable read and will be of interest to anyone wanting a clear example of how we can bring positive change to our communities. It will challenge you to pick up a torch.”
