have I read anything so rich and satisfying as Georgia Green Stamper’s
delightful Butter in the Morning.
It is a memoir, a history and a sociology text all in the guise of a
collection of essays. These are no ordinary essays, however, they are
tales from a life made extraordinary in the living and the telling.
Indeed, in these difficult times when every day seems to bring news of
yet one more failure of the human condition,
shares story after story
reflecting the intermingled sorrow and joy that have been the legacy of
her people and her place. Through it all her outlook is one of hope,
optimism, and humor—a joy from cover to cover.

and Songs of Life and Grace
Georgia Green Stamper is a wonderfully original writer. She is to
what Bailey White is to
—unique in every way.
Humorous, perceptive, and poignant, her essays are perfectly crafted
gems illuminating those little moments in life that make it worth
living, reminding us to appreciate the present before it quickly passes
away. We are still smiling and mulling over her insights, long after
we’ve read the last page.
— Gwyn Hyman Rubio, author of Icy Sparks
and The Woodsman’s Daughter
Green Stamper’s essays do that most important thing that only the most

place, a time, and its people. Stamper’s eye is sharp, and her pen is
doubly so. Here is a book brimming with poetry and wisdom.

Quilt and The Coal Tattoo
is wise, most are humorous and all are instructive. But it is the grace
of Stamper’s syntax . . . that renders her writing special. . . . all
of the author’s essays are as sharp and polished as faceted stones
