Slones journey carries her from her childhood home on Caney Creek to the busy streets of Cleveland, Ohio, before calling her back to the mountains of Eastern Kentucky to teach others. Believing that great works can be done by the people of the mountains, Slone sets out to expand her dream. She is tireless and creative in her efforts to build a school on Lotts Creek during the Great Depression, opening up to future generations of mountain children the advantage of higher learning. RING THE SILVER BELL establishes Alice Slone as a true Kentucky hero and a role model for Americans everywhere. www.MotesBooks.com
