The Last Mountain

Wilma Dykeman
(1920-2006)

This Southern author has climbed her last mountain. She died after complications from hip replacement surgery this December. Mrs. Dykeman Stokely wrote one of my all time favorite books, The Tall Woman. A patron once told me she considered it a compliment when people referred to her as tall after reading this book.
