​History and Tales of the Paintsville Stockyard.  Nonfiction. This is a curious little book. I have heard from fans as far away as west Texas, Florida, Ohio, and an inmate in the Indiana State prison who've enjoyed this book​


 My novel Where Everything Important Happens on a Hillside is the original​ Hillbilly Elegy. But my book comes with a money back guarantee. Finish reading this book and if you don't find it satisfying and informative, along with an eagerness to share it, then write me a one-page critique why not and I will send your full purchase price back. (But remember, this is a piece of literature and cannot be rejected on any kind of moral grounds.)
