Pain and anger resonate deeply in the voice of `New Covenant Bound''s central narrator. Forced from her homeland on the Tennessee River in the 1930s, she recounts the memory of upheaval and destruction caused by the Tennessee Valley Authority. The western Kentucky area that now boasts beautiful, expansive bodies of water was once home to the houses, farms, townships, and ancestral history of some 20,000 people. Residents were subjected to three waves of forced relocation to make way for Kentucky Lake in the 1930s, Lake Barkley in the 1950s, and Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area in the 1960s. Renowned poet T. Crunk intersperses narrative prose and lyric verse to explore the devastation one family experienced in this often-overlooked episode in Kentucky history. The voices of a grandmother and grandson speak to each other across time, evoking the relentless advance of irrevocable forces that changed the land forever.
