The Face of Appalachia

by

The Face of Appalachia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Life in the steep hills of Appalachia has changed more in the last twenty years than in the previous two hundred. Long a region of farmers, burley tobacco, cattle, copious gardens, durable traditions, and hard-working families, it has become a region of retirees, developers, young urban escapees, and new highways. Aware of the transformation, Tim Barnwell set out to document the lives of the people in the land he grew up in. His sensitive portraits, landscapes, and farm scenes, and his penetrating oral histories give us an entrée into a life characterized by straightforward joys, hardships, isolation, and independence. It is a way of life we will not see again.

Book News Annotation:

Photographer Tim Barnwell captures the character of North Carolina's rural farmers and craftspeople, as well as the region's beautiful mountainous and agricultural landscapes, in an elegant volume of b&w photographs taken from 1977 to the present.
