about this book

The co-host of NPR's "All Things Considered" chronicles his year-long journey through the heart of Appalachia by foot, bike, canoe, and whitewater raft. On his trip, Adams talks to a variety of contemporary Appalachians: from whitewater daredevils to a baptizing preacher, from an "herb wizard" to men who worked the strip mines where the herbs now grow. In the end, Adams creates an important portrait of a resilient people prevailing in this seemingly timeless part of the U.S. 256 pp.
