     Biographical note 
 Children's author Rebecca Caudill was born in 1899 in Poor Folk, Harlan County, in the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky. When Caudill was five years old, her family left Kentucky for Tennessee in order to pursue better educational opportunities for the ten Caudill children. Much of Caudill's writing is based on her two Appalachian childhood settings. Caudill was the first member of her family to go to college. She earned a bachelor's degree from Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia and a master's degree in international relations from Vanderbilt University. After completing her studies, Caudill taught English in Brazil for two years, worked as an editor in Nashville, and finally moved to Chicago to work in a publishing house. In Chicago she met fellow author and editor James Sterling Ayars, whom she married in 1931. In 1937, the Ayars moved to Urbana, Illinois, where they settled permanently with their two children, James Ayars, Jr. and Rebecca Jean Ayars.  Over the course of her career, Caudill wrote over twenty children's books, including  Tree of Freedom , which was a Newbery Honor Book in 1950 and  Pocketful of Cricket , which was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1965. In 1969, she and her husband co-authored  Contrary Jenkins Though known primarily for her children's books, Caudill also wrote magazine articles, short stories, and a nonfiction book,  My Appalachia , which is a documentary of the socio-economic conditions in Southern Appalachia in the mid-1960s. Caudill was also active in her Illinois community and her Kentucky hometown. She gave many lectures and speeches throughout Appalachia and the Midwest to advocate for peace, cofounded the Champaign-Urbana Peace Council, and served on the boards of trustees for Harlan County, Kentucky's Pine Mountain Settlement School and for the Urbana Free Library in Illinois. Harlan County's first community library in Cumberland, Kentucky was renamed the Rebecca Caudill Public Library in her honor in 1973. Caudill died in 1985.
