Where on earth is Woodpeck? Who on earth would ever write a story about it? We grew up in Sullivan, just a stone’s throw from Woodpeck, West Virginia. In those early years, the steep, rugged terrain and virtual isolation of coal camp living inspired countless hours of exploration, hide-and-seek, and experiences that helped cultivate a couple of very vivid imaginations. Children of the ’50s and ’60s, challenged to find ways to amuse ourselves in that remote place apart from mainstream society, we discovered that storytelling fit the bill. In fact, storytelling in our family runs back as far as we can trace our roots. We are the first, however, to publish our work. After more than fifty years of writing, we finally decided to share the family tradition with you. This book is just the beginning of our collection. Master’s degrees notwithstanding, from Elmer’s fourth-grade play, to Carol’s tailored stories for friends at Stoco Junior High, to stories and poems submitted to small, local newspapers, this is our biggest, boldest step.


It is now that we offer something more permanent for our progeny; hence, The Primates of Woodpeck Ridge and Other Ramblings. Be amused. Be very amused.
