Review quote

"With "The Appalachians," Mari-Lynn Evans set out to explore the world of her forebears -- a world her grandparents had taught her to be proud of, but one she wanted to discover for herself before its culture faded any further. She came back with a definitive portrait of this gorgeous and little known American frontier that comes to life in her PBS series, and in a way, even more so in this accompanying volume."Michael Shnayerson, author of "Coal River" and contributing editor to "Vanity Fair" "
