Renie from Golden Pond is the true story of Lorene Turner Higgins (Renie), a country girl who grew up in Western Kentucky's "Land Between The Rivers." Author Barbara Hillyard recounts this remarkable life story. Renie married at 15 to Lawton Higgins, a teenage moonshiner. Her life is filled with tales of running illegal moonshine and evading "the law," as well as the overwhelming trauma of being forced from her dream home in Golden Pond, Kentucky. History, culture and vivid geographic descriptions characterize the special breed of inhabitants who lived "between the rivers." The lost art of moonshining, along with many common practices for survival and entertainment from the early 1900's, the great depression, and WW II era's are shared in this wonderful story.
