Carol (carolann86) | 3 comments Does anyone have any good recommendations for books set in the Appalachian mountains around the turn of the century through 1930's?


Kate Quinn | 649 comments Christy is very good - a turn of the century girl who goes to teach school in the Appalachian mountains. (It might be a slightly earlier time period, but the writer makes the point that time moves slowly in that region so I doubt the historical feeling will be impacted.) An excellent book - it is evangelical, but don't let that put you off if you don't like evangelical fiction - I don't either, usually, but the book is a well balanced story which doesn't just talk about the problems of faith, but other life problems as well like romance, daily life, work, etc.


Amber | 7 comments Try Ron Rash. His books are located in Western NC and SC. He is also a professor at Western Carolina University in the Appalachian mountains. Really a great author!Ron Rash


Chrissie Bloodroot takes place in the Appalachians, but it starts in the 1930s and continues up until today.
