Randall Stargill lies dying on his Appalachian farm, and his four sons have come home to build him a coffin from his precious cache of rosewood. Like a hovering vulture, a local real estate developer is readying an offer for the farm. And mountain wise-woman Nora Bonesteel, Randall's sweetheart of long ago, brings to light a small box to be buried with Randall--a box containing human bones. Thus the stage is set for a tale of family strife, dark secrets, and eerie legends among mountain people torn between tradition and change. This hauntingly beautiful novel evokes the spiritually charged mountains where the night wind still sounds its eternal song.

display_description Randall Stargill is dying. As his four sons gather to build his coffin, a local wise woman arrives with a small box that must be buried with the old man. In it are the fragile bones of a child and the memories of an ancient crime. Already faced with decisions about what to do with their father's farm, his sons are now drawn into a hazardous conflict between families who would die for their land and those who do not value the rich tradition of the region. As the Stargills attempt to identify the child, McCrumb weaves mystical Indian legends and Daniel Boone's sweeping visions of his beloved mountains into the investigation.
