Appalachia on Our Mind

Appalachia on Our Mind The Southern Mountains and Mountaineers in the American Consciousness, 1870-1920 SHAPIRO, Henry D.

Offers a history of the American idea of Appalachia. The author argues that the emergence of this idea has little to do with the realities of mountain life but was the result of a need to reconcile the "otherness" of Appalachia, as decribed by local-colour writers, tourists, and home missionaries, with assumptions about the nature of America and American civilization.
