    The storytelling tradition of the southern Appalachians comes to life through actress/writer Clarinda Ross's portrayal of four generations of her maternal ancestors. The video takes viewers on an intimate tour through the past, following the family's lineage from an 1890 homesteader to a modern-day actress who left the mountains to pursue her craft in the big city. The stories that she relates detail the march of time and progress in the most personal of terms. This is the story of America itself, in its transition from Indians and the wilderness frontier to an industrialized land where economic opportunity and foreign wars began to tear families apart for the first time and change the traditional roles of women.
