Abstract Interview of Barbara Caudill by Melanie Zuercher. Caudill discusses cornshuck crafts.

Interviewer's description-
"Barbara Caudill was a typical mountain woman who raised five children and had to figure out a way to make money to do it. Her husband was frequently out of work and eventually became disabled. She made money by learning to make and market corn shuck dolls. She was able to branch out from her basic doll pattern she first learned. Her motivation for making the dolls is financial. She is a woman who experienced a lot of pain and hardship in her life but has little or no bitterness as a result."
