Summary:

After its publication in 1962, Harry M. Caudill's acclaimed portrait of the southern Appalachian Mountains became a rallying cry for action against the poverty plaguing the region. Here Caudill explores the area's history, from its first settlement to the Civil War, and from the rise of coal barons to the economic despair of the 1950s and 1960s.
