New Covenant BoundeBook - 2010
The expansive lakes and peaceful nature refuges of western Kentucky are haunted by memories of communities and lives that were sacrificed for the sake of progress. Over a period of thirty years, some twenty-eight thousand people were forcibly removed from their homes to make way for Kentucky Lake in the 1930s, Lake Barkley in the 1950s, and Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area in the 1960s. In New Covenant Bound, renowned poet T. Crunk intersperses narrative prose and vivid lyric verse to explore the devastation one family experienced in this overlooked episode in Kentucky history. Bridging generations of pain and loss, voices of the past and present evoke the relentless advance of forces that changed this land and its legacy forever. Book jacket.
