The Wonderful and Terrible Kentucky Samaritan
WEST JEFFERSON, N.C., Aug. 20, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- Twenty-five years ago, Ninety Brothers and Sisters by Lenore De Pree was published by Harper & Row with the promise of a twenty-one gun salute, a write-up in the New York Times, and a possible movie deal.

Why? Over the years, the author was troubled by the fact that the story she had written as a cautionary tale was still waiting to be read. Finally, she decided to reissue the book.
