Five generations of the Rich family pioneered the hills of Southeastern Ohio, beginning in the mid-eighteenth century with the arrival of Jacob Reich.

And a rich heritage it is, recounted through the descriptive "Do You Remember? Stories" and letters of a close-knit family...

Tragedy and joy, birth and death~the cycle of life moves through this saga of people who loved the hills of home.
