Product Details


Deeply affecting, On Snowden Mountain powerfully depicts how positive human connectedness can transform generations, even whole communities. Jeri Watts has built a world, embedded in a mountain and embraced by a river, that does not retreat from adversity, but rather welcomes and transforms suffering into hope and growth.
—Gigi Amateau, author of Chancey: Horses of the Maury River Stables

Through a realistically complex character whose growth is organic and well-wrought, Watts (A Piece of Home) offers an unsparing look at the impact of depression, as well as the ways that human connection can change lives.
—Publishers Weekly

In this beautifully and honestly written work of historical fiction, 12-year-old Ellen Hollingsworth learns about mental illness, abuse, community, and family while navigating a time of war…This book is perfect for someone dealing with any of the issues tackled here, for lovers of historical fiction, and for anyone who simply loves a well-crafted tale. This book should be included in every school library, even high school, and in classroom libraries from grades four and up!
—School Library Connection

Students who have personal experience with depression themselves or with loved ones will appreciate Watt’s subtle depiction and the patience with which it is handled in the story. An important book that has the ability to dispel misunderstandings about mental illness; recommended for all middle grade readers.
—School Library Journal
