Two Weeks Every Summer, Stories from Camp Meeting

ISBN-9780982956137

A collection of twenty short stories inspired by old-timey camp meeting - a mix of religious revival, family reunion and small-town carnival. Thousands of people come together during the hottest part of a North Carolina summer, to stay in side-by-side primitive cabins and enjoy traditions that go back nearly 200 years. Camp meeting has endured through thunderstorms and bad roads, the Civil war and two World wars, fire, earthquake and twenty-first century technology.  These stories span that entire period of time from 1830 to today. As one camper has said, "Camp meeting is not just a place with old shacks. It is our heart and soul and the very fabric that holds our community together.
