Christy is Christy Rudd Huddleston, the heroine of Catherine Marshall's best selling novel "Christy," which was published in 1967.  In the winter of 1912, nineteen-year-old Christy left her Asheville home to teach at a mission school in Cutter Gap, Tennessee.  The book tells the story of the many hardships that Christy encountered during her first year in Cutter Gap and how she survived them through determination, courage, and faith in God. 3.  IS CHRISTY A REAL PERSON? The character of Christy was inspired by Catherine Marshall's mother, Leonora Whitaker Wood who taught at a Presbyterian mission school in Del Rio, Tennessee from 1910-1912. 4. DOES CUTTER GAP REALLY EXIST? Cutter Gap in reality is Morgan Gap, which is located in Cocke County Tennessee.  El Pano is really Del Rio, Tennessee a mountain community also located in Cocke County. 5. DID LEONORA MARRY THE DOCTOR AND LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER? In real life, Leonora Whitaker married the Rev. John Wood, who was the minister at the mission. 6.  SO THE BOOK ISN'T A TRUE STORY? The book is faction- part fact and part fiction.  In the prologue of "Christy" Catherine Marshall writes: "And suddenly, I understood how the story should be written - through mother's eyes, as I had seen it all along.  Only from the beginning, my imagination had taken hold of the true incidents and had begun shaping them so that now, after so many years, I myself scarcely knew where truth stopped and fiction began.  Therefore, though so much of the story really happened, I would set it down in the form of fiction." 7.  IS THE BOOK STILL IN PRINT? Yes.  "Christy" is available in paperback at your local bookstore.  If you prefer an audio version, you can order the three-tape set, which is narrated by Kellie Martin from Audio Renaissance by sending your check or money order for $19.95 plus $2.50 shipping and handling to:                Audio Renaissance                5858 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 205                Los Angeles, CA 90036 The number is 1-800-452-5589 or you can e-mail them at AudioRen@aol.com.  The cost of the audiotape is $19.95.

IS THE AUTHOR STILL LIVING? Catherine Marshall passed away March 18, 1983.  Her mother, Leonora Whitaker Woods, died six years later.  The two women are buried side by side in Fort Lincoln Cemetary near Washington, D.C. 9.  MY EIGHT-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER LOVED THE SERIES AND WANTS TO READ THE BOOK.  IS THERE A CHILDREN'S VERSION OF "CHRISTY?"

The area where "Christy" was filmed is on private property and is closed to the public.
