CHOICE Review

Since 35 writers asked to discuss any topic are bound to come forth with widely divergent responses, this volume is a great deal more cohesive than one might expect. It contains many valuable insights for those interested in Appalachia, writing, and the creative process. All of the writers included have some connection with Appalachia--whether through birth, chance, or choice--but the editor's guiding principle--following Cedille Haddix, ed. of Who Speaks for Appalachia? (1975)--is that Appalachia is as much a "region of the heart as of geography." This belief prompts Dyer (Hiram College) to include writers such as Betsy Sholl and Nikky Finney alongside the much more obvious choices of Wilma Dykeman, George Ella Lyon, Rita Sims Quillen, Mary Lee Settle, and Lee Smith. Although all of the writers discuss their writing and its ties to their Appalachian experience in some fashion, the book should appeal to audiences who have little or no knowledge of the Appalachian region as well as those who are particularly interested in it and its literature. Winner of the 1997 Appalachian studies award, this book is a worthwhile addition to collections supporting Appalachian studies, where it fills an almost vacant niche. R. H. Peake formerly, Clinch Valley College of the University of Virginia
