The Mountain Reader. Second Edition.
This book consists of a compilation of 28 stories, mostly first-person accounts of life in the Sequatchie Valley of southeastern Tennessee (some from earlier times) written in simplified language to provide high-interest reading material for adult readers in rural areas. The book is printed in large type. Many of the stories provide pertinent information for the reader, coupling stories with practical information and telephone numbers and addresses for services. The reading levels in the book are based on the Fry Graph for Estimating Readability, the Dolch Word List, and lists of most-used words. The reading levels range from primer through fourth grade. The stories in part 1 of this two-part book, written on the lowest levels, have a controlled vocabulary and all new words are listed. In part 2, difficult or unusual words are defined. (KC)
