"Farewell, I'm Bound to Leave You begins in a room made cool by the approach of death, where an old woman and her grieving daughter are saying good-bye in silent, urgent conversation. In the next room, Jess Kirkman waits with his father, remembering the tales his grandmother and mother have passed down - an inheritance rich in language and music and imaginative teaching, told by women to a young man who will one day find such wisdom needful." "Each tale builds and weaves in a counterplay as intricate as that of fiddle and banjo. Jess recalls "The Fisherwoman," "The Traveling Woman," "The Feistiest Woman," "The Silent Woman," "The Wind Woman," and others, in a range of ghost to detective to comic to love stories. As he tells, he comes to understand the special knowledge of the women and the place that made him: a mountain land where myth becomes history, language makes song, and time seems to pause at a certain point at dusk, when the moon casts deeper shadows than the sun."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
