 About the Book 

Appalachia. According to popular mythology, its a mountainous holdover from colonial days, an all-white outlaw society mired in poverty and cliche jokes about family feuds. Throw in some stories about moonshine, add a few images of grimy coal minersMoreAppalachia. According to popular mythology, its a mountainous holdover from colonial days, an all-white outlaw society mired in poverty and cliche jokes about family feuds. Throw in some stories about moonshine, add a few images of grimy coal miners and youre done. People who know better and try to preseve Appalachian history and culture are no match for developers greedy for more land and franchise locations. The process is irreversible, but the real story--hilariously funny, sometimes poignant, alway surprising--can be told, savored and remembered.
