In the Press: Casey Clabough
Posted by on May 5, 2015

The marking of the 150th anniversary of the end of the American Civil War took place recently. Casey Clabough, author of Confederado and of The End of Mountains (forthcoming by Little Curlew Press) had two timely pieces about the anniversary.

Clabough was quoted in this Associated Press article about an event commemorating the Confederate migration of Confederados that inspired his historical novel that records one man’s epic adventure across wars and hemispheres.

Clabough also wrote this great Creative Nonfiction piece “At Appomattox” published in Southern Literary Review.

The piece begins with these lines:

“I spent most of my youth on a farm in rural Appomattox County. I live on another one now that borders both a portion of the famous national park and an oddly inconspicuous 20,000-acre state forest.”

In The End of Mountains, Clabough once again enlivens the past as he tells the tale of the hardscrabble life of ancestor Columbus Clabough: the last of his family to live by the old Smoky Mountain ways—ways unsuited to a modern world.

Stay tuned for more posts on Casey and updates on The End of Mountains.

Have a great week!
