I've been reading "The Tattooed Lady: A History" by Amelia Klem Osterud. It's absolutely fascinating. Plus, if you have a wandering mind and can't be bothered with too many words -like me, lately- it's got lots and lots of pictures so you won't tax your brain. Which reminds me of this book:
"Appalachian Legacy" by Shelby Lee Adams. For Christmas one year, my sister Wendy received a copy of "Appalachian Legacy" and she and I must've oohed and aahed and 'holy shited' over that book for a couple of years. I just looked it up on Amazon and if anyone has an extra $1000 lying around they too can own a copy. Gotdamn!
