AWARD WINNING LOCAL HISTORY BOOK TO BE REVIEWED IN GRANVILLE

People of the Upper Cumberland: Achievements and Contradictions, edited by Tennessee Tech professors Michael Birdwell and Calvin Dickinson, will be featured in a lecture by Dickinson and Dr. Opless Walker at noon on October 1 during the Fall Festival in Granville.  The event will be in the museum at Granville.  Copies of the book will be sold at the event, and will be autographed by the authors.  The book won the Tennessee History Book Award for 2015, given annually by the Tennessee Library Association and the Tennessee Historical Commission.

Dr. Walker’s essay in the book, “Folk Medicine,” and his lecture in Granville, deal with the historic home medicine remedies of the Upper Cumberland Region. He discovered that these remedies were often successful, and some of the unsuccessful ones were actually humorous.  Historic folk medicine has provided the basis for some modern remedies and medical techniques.  Dr. Walker, the former chief pharmacologist at Cookeville Regional Medical Center, has long researched folk medicine and has explored the fascinating history of this practice.

Other essays in the book, which will be introduced by Dr. Dickinson, include a number of interesting and important people of the region, as well as important places in the Upper Cumberland. “American Indians in the Upper Cumberland” by Randy Williams, “Life and Leisure on the Cumberland River” by Mike Allen, “Early Careers of Cornell Hull and John Gore” by Mark Dudney, “The Legend of Champ Ferguson” by Troy Smith, “Upper Cumberland Moonshine” by Michael Birdwell, and nine other essays provide an interesting story of life in the Upper Cumberland region.

The lecture is free and the public is invited to the Granville Museum on October 1 at noon.
