"A groundbreaking book [that]...employs the 'Marxist brnchf of cultural anthropology' to show how Cherokee ideas about climate, geography, religion, race, sex, and family intertwined with those of European settlers to create a distinct set of cultural codes now recognized as 'Appalachian.'...An especial treat comes at book's end where Prajznerova provides a twenty-one-page transcript of an interview she conducted with Smith." -- Appalachian Heritage
