This story of a resilient, tough Appalachian woman who, as daughter, wife, and mother, provides strength and inspiration for her family in the face of extreme adversity, was first published in 1950, though it was written during the thirties. The book reflects the central feminist vision that values the strong and intelligent partner in this family life, who, when her husband loses his leg, assumes not only the responsibility for the family's survival, but even for his. The novel is beautifully written, spare and direct in its language, and the characterization is warm and human.

"One of the most impressive proletarian characters in our literature." --Richard Wright "Myra Page has captured the feeling tone of the harsh struggle for life in a mining community. She has brought to us a woman who is remarkable not because she represents a unique experience, but because she evokes the lives of so many non-urban women." --Alice Kessler-Harris

"The heroism of Dolly Hawkins lies both in her resistance to exploitation and in her sheer love of life--her capacity to live it fully even in the face of deprivation and loss. This is a text that refuses to sever sexuality and work, love and social protest. Daugher of the Hills, in fact, is both a heterosexual love story and a novel of social protest. The combination is curiously rare in American literary history." --Deborah S. Rosenfelt One of the most impressive proletarian characters in our literature.
