The Copeland family, of Listre, North Carolina, goes back a long way. A Copeland bride planted wisteria by her back porch 20 years before the Civil War. Now her vine has just about taken over the woods around the family graveyard. Meredith's father, Albert Copeland, keeps a sort of written family record. He keeps it in some notebooks he bought to log the flight of his home-built floatplane, a project Albert first undertook back in 1956, when his children were just kids. By the time they are grown - Thatcher with a son of his own, Meredith and Mark back from Vietnam, Noralee dating hippies - the notebooks are thick with the floatplane's failure to lift off and bulging with color polaroids of the wisteria blossoms, favorite family dogs, weddings, a diagram of the graveyard, and a newspaper story about one of Meredith's many backfired schemes. 265 pages, no marks or tears. The price on the DJ is clipped. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
