Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book provides marvelous photographic insights into the daily life of the Valley, its people, workplaces, and visitors." — Bookman News

"Kollar's photos are the real stars, showing off everything from the Winterfest lights of Pigeon Forge and a Smoky Mountains sunset, to Elvis Presley's birth place in Tupelo, Miss., and The Grand Guitar alongside I-81 on the Tennessee-Virginia line." — Bristol (TN) Herald-Courier

"Kollar and Leiter focus on the small towns, rugged landscapes, and folkways that make the region a unique part of America" — Cleveland (TN) Banner

"It would be helpful if a volume like this one, examining the region in detail, could be published every decade. … The text of this brief work is useful in amplifying data and clarifying some of the subtle and not-so-subtle changes that have transformed the Tennessee Valley in recent years." — Forum for Applied Research and Public Policy

"Leiter and Kollar focus on the small towns and the rugged beauty of the landscape and folkways that make the region a unique part of America." — Johnson City Press

"To their credit, they see everything — from stunning sunsets to stock car races, from Dolly Parton to polluting factories, from plowed earth to people of every persuasion" — Knoxville News-Sentinel

"To be Southern is to know place, and this is a book of place." — Magazine (Baton Rouge, LA)

"Kollar's photography is absolutely smashing." — Southern Seen
