Bearwallow author Jeremy B. Jones creates book trailer


Debut memoirist Jeremy B. Jones has put his talents (and those of his friends) to good use in this beautiful book trailer for Bearwallow: A Personal History of a Mountain Homeland. Not only did Jeremy record the reading of an excerpt from the book, but that's also him plucking away at the guitar in the background.
