Long Man
A river called Long Man has coursed through East Tennessee from time immemorial, but the Tennessee Valley Authority plans to dam the river and flood the town of Yuneetah for the sake of progress. Just a few days remain before the river will rise, and most of the town has been evacuated. Among the holdouts is Annie Clyde Dodson, whose ancestors have lived for generations on her mountaintop farm. As the deadline looms, a storm rages, a drifter is determined to save his hometown... and Annie's young daughter Gracie is nowhere to be found. "In the summer of 1936, the TVA plans to build a dam in a Tennessee town at the same time a little girl goes missing--possibly stolen by a drifter determined to blow up the dam"--

Really enjoyed this novel. I wish the author had given a little more character development to Amos; he was pivotal but I never really identified with him or knew quite what motivated him.
