Barry D. Yelton, “Scarecrow in Gray” author, hails from hill country of North Carolina
Barry D. Yelton, author of Scarecrow in Gray, (September 2006, Universe) based roughly on the Civil War experiences of his great-grandfather is currently at work on the sequel.
As to my work, I am a bit of a poet, a bit of a novelist, and a whole lot of Southern. I come from the hill country of North Carolina, which is a unique place unto itself. Our accents tend to have a bit more twang and a little less honey than those you hear in the movies. We were also ambivalent about secession, unlike our rabid cousins in South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi and Louisiana.
