Success in Hill Country is a collection of oral histories told by entrepreneurs, artists, educators, doctors and athletes who have realized their dreams. From an NFL veteran coached by Vince Lombardi to a bestselling novelist, their journeys to success are as varied as the pieces of a patchwork quilt. Binding them together is the collective belief in the power of the mind to overcome obstacles and the early influence of a mountain culture that inspired their drive to succeed.
“Amy Clark has collected riveting success stories from the largely misunderstood region of the United States that produced Napoleon Hill, one of the bestselling motivational writers of all time.

No matter where you’re from, this book will inspire you.” --Sharon Lechter, Annotator of Napoleon Hill’s Outwitting the Devil and coauthor of Three Feet From Gold and Rich Dad, Poor Dad books
“It turns out that the mountains of southwest Virginia are not only beautiful, they have brains. Dr. Amy Clark has done us all a great service, by going to the best and brightest of our hills and tapping their infinite powers of faith, ambition and belief, to show us all a better way to live. Brava, Amy!” --Adriana Trigiani, bestselling novelist of the Big Stone Gap series
“When I was growing up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia during the Great Depression, I dreamed the impossible dream of becoming a writer. In time I found heroes like Thomas Wolfe, John Fox Jr, and Jesse Stuart who inspired me. In her interviews with folks who have achieved success in every area from sports to medicine, from writing to education, Amy Clark’s stories will inspire the reader to achieve his or her dreams. As a proud son of the ‘hill country’ who has achieved a degree of success, I recommend this book with enthusiasm and admiration.” --Earl Hamner, novelist and creator of the beloved television series The Waltons
