Dave Rosenbaum: Comment on John Ed Pearce and Bert Combs
Dave recommends going to the Adair County Public Library and reading all John Ed Pearce's writings. And he adds a new term to the local GWS local lexicon: Drop Downs
Comments re article 47298 Tom Chaney R730 John Ed Pearce
Dave Rosenbaum writes:
Very good article on John Ed Pearce by Mr. Chaney. John Ed was a great observer and interpreter of Kentucky. His 1994 book on the Kentucky feuds is one of a few books that kept me reading until I had finished. I sure hope that your readers who are new to Adair County ( called "drop-downs" at Fairplay) will go to the Adair Library and get all his writings.Thanks, Bro. Dave, for that critique. Couldn't agree with you more. The works of John Ed Pearce received the late Pete Walker's highest accolade when he said, (or maybe praised John Ed Pearce to his face,) "I guess," Walker said, "I'd rather read John Ed Pearce's stuff better than anybody's writing I know - except when when I'm at my best. Then I'd rather read me." Which was pretty Right On for everybody else. Pete Walker was one of the all time great Adair County - and that says so much - writers. -EW
