Mountain cabin taken by Wayne County, WV photographer Thomas Luther. There is no better photo to illustrate the harshness and beauty of mountain life. So many things near and dear to mountaineers are shown in this photo - family, farming, hunting, dogs, and even banjo picking (note the kid behind the barrel of the gun).
