Big Creek, Yancey County, NC

“Any man can work when every stroke of his hands
brings down the fruit rattling from the tree…
but to labor in season and out of season,
under every discouragement…that requires
a heroism which is transcendent.”

Henry Ward Beecher, 1813-1887
Prominent clergyman, social reformer, abolitionist
