Appalachians All East Tennesseans and the Elusive History of an American Region

Mark T. Banker

Appalachians All intertwines the histories of three communities Knoxville with its urban life, Cades Cove with its farming, logging, and tourism legacies, and the Clearfork Valley with its coal production to tell a larger story of East Tennessee and its inhabitants. Combining a perceptive account of how industrialization shaped developments in these communities since the Civil War with a heartfelt reflection on Appalachian identity, Mark Banker provides a significant new regional history with implications that extend well beyond East Tennessee's boundaries. 328 pages.
