Description:This fall issue of GOLDENSEAL features a nice selection of fall leaning articles. The cover story from Alan Byer features the newly restored Durbin Route on the Cass Scenic Railroad. Alan also shares his memories of the Buffalo Creek & Gauley Railroad in this issue. State Folklorist Jennie Williams writes on the Fiber Arts Apprenticeship taking place between lifelong friends Barbara Weaner and Enrica McMillon as part of the West Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Program. Raymond Alvarez does a great job summing up West Virginia’s first civil right case. Photographer Dale Kinnison recounts his experiences at the West Virginia Rail Heritage Weekend and shares some photos taken there. Dr. C.R. Thomas recounts youthful shenanigans in “The Bever Boys Brewery” and David McCormick shares the history of the Brewing and Bottling works of Harper’s Ferry. Freelance writer and photographer Jennifer Broadstreet Hess shares her experience on the Tygart Flyer, a diesel powered locomotive out of Elkins, on a trip to WV with her daughter. Author Danny Kuhn debates the truthfulness of alleged Civil war veteran Edward Kelly. Charles Sheets shares memories from his father’s time as an Oldsmobile dealer in Pocahontas County. In this issue Folktales for Fall has made a comeback with two slightly spooky stories from contributors Joe McHugh and Anneliese Blevins. West Virginia’s efforts to restore the American chestnut are discussed by Carl E. Feather and Jeff Kochenderfer in two separate articles. The American chestnut played an influential role in early Appalachian’s self-sufficiency and the loss of the trees—once found in all 55 counties–was detrimental to their way of life. Myra Alley Kingsburg shares the story of how her grandmother implemented a hot lunch program in 1950s Fayette County Schools. Candy Thompson recounts her experience at the Macomber Community Church’s annual apple butter festival, and Carl Feather wraps up the issue with another WV Backroads featuring a Preston County family farm’s transition to preserving and sharing heirloom apple varieties.
