Mountain People: Life and Culture in Appalachia

Mountain People: Life and Culture in Appalachia is a small collection that is part of the Gale (a division of Cengage Learning) “Archives Unbound” series. Consisting of just more than 42,000 images, the collection covers the period 1700-1950 and “explores Appalachia’s contradictory images that have shaped perceptions of the region as both the essence of America and a place apart,” according to Gale.
