Written in the dialect of the era, this group of stories from the Midwest is offered in a variety of subjects, "Twixt the Road and the River' being one of them.  Young Amy Catherine was a 'modern' of her time in turn-of-the-century Arkansas.  Being the fifth child after four boys, she was more or less turned over to her grandmother to raise.  Her 'Gran' could not be happier, and proceeded to make a special quilt to remind the girl, after she was gone, of her duty as laid out by the wisest man in the last of Proverbs 31.  Pictures, hand-drawn by the girl were transferred to the quilt in embroidery as a constant and permanent reminder.

Gran also had opinions as to the right choice of a mate, and Johnny, from across the hollow, would like to be the one chosen.  He would love to help Amy Catherine if he could just figure out how she wanted to be helped.  Johnny, however, came into his own when something that belonged to Amy Catherine was threatened by the rushing Tuscalara River.  He bravely took it upon himself to save it for her even if it took a battle against the Mississippi Central Railway as well as the water.
