Description:Our Spring 2024 issue features a cover story from John Preston of Greenbrier County, reflecting on his time spent finishing a cello started by the late Harold Hayslett of South Charleston. This issue also begins the celebration of GOLDENSEAL’s 50th year. To mark that occasion, we will be featuring a few then-and-now style pieces in each issue this year. In our Spring issue you will find three such article pairings regarding ginseng, the Mortgage Lifter tomato, and WV quilt traditions: a Fall 1992 article from James Beecher Hinkle, ginseng philosopher, followed by an interview with Chuck Crews, a Greenbrier County resident and certifiable mountain man who spends his free time trapping and foraging; a Summer 1994 article by John L. Marra interviewing Bob Estler followed by a present day visit with the family regarding the legacy of the Mortgage Lifter; and lastly a winter 1990 article from Janice D. Lantz concerning Mountain State Quilt Heritage followed by an article from contributing author Edwina Pendarvis about the Piecemakers quilting group of Huntington. Also in this issue is our regular column from State Folklorist Jennie Williams “Showcasing the Folklife Apprenticeship Program”; an article by Myra Alley Kingsbury sharing the story of her Grandmother, Grace Walker Campbell—known to her loved ones as Mawzy; a brief interview with Grow This WV; a conversation about seed saving with Dr. Lewis Jett of WVU Extension; a look back at the 2023 Vandalia Gathering; stories from our 2023 Liar’s Contest first place winners; and the award winners of the 2023 West Virginia Quilts and Wall Hangings Juried Exhibition. As usual the issue is wrapped up with another West Virginia Back Roads from Carl Feather regarding the Sunset Ellis Restaurant in Shinnston.
