    Default Article: Puckett Cabin - Laurel Fork Virginia

  2. Default

    I am the author of Orlean Puckett: The Life of a Mountain Midwife. The cabin that stands along the Blue Ridge Parkway and is pictured here is inaccurately identified as Orlean's home. This cabin was the home of Orlean's sister-in-law Betty Puckett. Orlean's home stood a few yards from Puckett Cabin and was a much nicer, larger, two-story log home. Orlean never lived in Puckett Cabin. I conducted years of research and interviews while writing Puckett's biography and present the details of her life, her home, the spelling of her name, her age, her pregnancies, deliveries she made, mountain ways, the creation of the Blue Ridge Parkway and more in my book. From her relatives and neighbors, most delivered by "Aunt Orlean," I learned that she was indeed a remarkable woman. I am glad that she is getting the recognition she deserves. I would encourage everyone to visit this beautiful spot along the Virginia Blue Ridge Parkway.
