"The Homecoming" a Novel about Spencer's Mountain written by Earl Hamner, Jr., published by Random House, copyright 1970. Book Club edition.
Earl Hamner writes: " It is remembered in my family that on Christmas Eve of 1933 my father was late arriving home. That, along with the love that he and my mother bestowed upon their eight red-headed offspring, is fact. The rest is fiction."
When Clay Spencer failed to arrive home at the expected hour that Christmas Eve, his family grew concerned. While his seven red-head brothers and sisters and his mother kept vigil, the oldest son, Clay-Boy, went to search for his father. On his journey through the snowbound Virginia hills, the boy's adventures were frequently dangerous, often touching, and more often hilarious.
