"Enriches our knowledge of the southern mountains and suggests exciting possibilities for where future studies might go."--Journal of Appalachian Studies
"Appalachia in the Making is required reading for historians of whatever altitude."--Journal of Southern History
"Appalachia in the Making is, unquestionably, the most important book on the transformation of the mountain South in the nineteenth century to be published in years."--West Virginia History
"This volume stands alone in its attempt to treat Appalachia as it really is or was, over a century or more, without special pleading derived from some presumption about the essential exceptionality of the region or its people."--Appalachian Journal
"There is not an essay in it that does not significantly advance our thinking about, and understanding of, not only the particularities of Appalachian mountain life but also the Great Topics of historical study--modernization, westward expansion, the capitalization of new world enterprise, the relationship of culture and place. . . . All together, it feels like the real Appalachia at last--and welcome."--Henry D. Shapiro, author of Appalachia on Our Mind: The Southern Mountains and Mountaineers in the American Consciousness
