  • Natalie Kinsey-Warnock

    My sister, three brothers, and I grew up on a Vermont dairy farm in a region known as the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, USA, where my Scottish ancestors settled almost two hundred years ago.Our lives revolved around our church, our community, and the hard work of farming Along with milking and feeding the animals each morning and evening, there was the work of each season maple sugaring, plowing, picking stone, planting, haying, corn cutting, harvest, cutting wood.While my parents lives were consumed by farming and providing for their children, they managed to pass on much to us My mother, a teacher, instilled in us a love of books and reading, and a curiosity about everything, while my father, besides being an excellent athlete, has also encouraged our interest in the natural world, whether it was identifying birds, trees and wildflowers, or pointing out constellations on a starry night.My book As Long As There Are Mountains is based on my childhood and my love of the farm, the land, and the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.

  • Natalie Kinsey Warnock is a good author, although if I had to choose three authors to recomment, she wouldn t be on that list It was an ok book Nothing wrong with it, just not my favorite There isn t anything that I don t like about how she writes her books, there just isn t that much i don t know It just isn t my type of book


  • Yep, this is a young adult book and I just read it I quite enjoyed it, too It provided a good look at Vermont farm life during the 1950s and I also found the issues the protagonist had to face at such a young age to be very real and moving.


  • Exceptional story of rural life and the close ties of family Although the end was quite a surprise I would have liked to have seen the storyline carried further possibly in a second book with the story of the family s adjustment to village life.





  • Loved this book, but as a farmer s daughter and all our family has been through the last two years it hits too close to home.





  • A young adult book, the story takes place in the 1950 s when life was much simpler and neighbors helped each other I enjoyed it very much.
