Dwarf pine and yellow moonshine grass
Thrive on this dry, rejected land.
Hawk-weed and bitter sassafras
Root-clutch their living from its sand.
Black ground was fenced for men to till.
The dead of Gauley own this hill.
–Louise McNeill’s “Burying Field,” from Gauley Mountain: A History in Verse (1939).
