Teri Darnell is descendant of a long line of unflinchingly resilient Appalachian women. As an Air Force veteran and business school graduate, Teri reveals stories of growing up with an undiagnosed bi polar father who chases the America dream by traveling though urban cities and back home in the Appalachian Mountains to find work while struggling with demons.Thousands of families experienced some form of failure in their efforts to make new lives in the city. Some returned to the Appalachian region, some stayed and experienced the worst of urban poverty during The Great Migration. Others fought the odds and overcame despair. Many still await the opportunity to have good schools, good jobs and secure neighborhoods. In Left-Right-Left, Teri tells deeply personal stories of how her family survived despite social and cultural difference coupled with a father who was mentally ill.
