Rate this:
An insider's perspective on Appalachia, and a frank, ferocious assessment of America's recent fascination with the people and the problems of the region.
"In 2016 headlines declared Appalachia ground zero for America's 'forgotten tribe' of white working-class voters. Following the presidential election, demystifying Appalachia and locating the roots of its dysfunction quickly seemed to become a national industry, shoring up the success of J.D. Vance's memoir Hillbilly Elegy and the author's rise to fame as the media's favorite working-class whisperer. With 'What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia,' Elizabeth Catte offers a much-needed perspective on Appalachia, and a frank, ferocious assessment of America's recent fascination with the people and problems of the region summed up in shorthand as 'Trump Country'." -- Page [4] of cover.
