Summary
"In Appalachian Folkways, geographer John B. Rehder offers an account of Southern Appalachia and its cultural milieu. Rehder, who has spent thirty years studying the region, offers a nuanced depiction of Southern Appalachia's social and cultural identity, from architecture and traditional livelihoods to beliefs and art. The book opens with an expert consideration of the Southern Appalachian landscape, defined by mountains, rocky soil, thick forests, and plentiful streams. While these features have shaped the inhabitants of the region, Rehder notes, Appalachians have also shaped their environment, and he goes on to explore the human influence on the landscape."--Jacket
