"The Copeland family of Listre, North Carolina, goes back a long way. A Copeland bride planted wisteria by her back porch 20 years before the Civil War. Now her vine has just about taken over the woods around the family graveyard. Think what that wisteria vine has seen, and what it could tell if it could talk!
"When the family gathers every May to clean up the graveyard and clip the vine back away from the tombstones, the old people talk to keep the path to the past open. They tell all the best stories again and they make sure the new brides understand how everybody (dead and alive) is kin and who is named for whom.
"Meredith's father, Albert Copeland, keeps a sort of written family record. He keeps it in some notebooks he bought to log the flights of his home-built floatplane, a project Albert first undertook back in 1956. "; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
