Abstract Interview of Dorothy Turner by Eunice Hast.

Interviewer's description-
"In this interview with Dorothy Turner she talks about Blackey, Kentucky. A small town in the hills of Appalachia, in Letcher County. Blackey was a coal town built by the miners and nature. Blackey was developed into a good size town when a string of natural disasters struck the town and finally it fell to the largest disaster of all, 'The Great Depression.' Mrs. Turner states that the difference in Blackey and other little towns is that she has withstood two fires of natural happening and the 1927 flood and came back each time."
