Appalachian Writers


Description

Literature written for, about, or by people from the Appalachian Mountain region of the Eastern United States. The Appalachian Mountains run from northern Georgia through the Carolinas, the Virginias, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania. The people settling Appalachia were predominately of English, Scotch-Irish, and German descent. The harsh topography with its lack of passable roads isolated some areas for generations. "The result was a culture that harkened back decades for traditions and customs and led its people to be called 'our contemporary ancestors.'" (Attributed to Berea College President William Frost)
