The distinctive way of life of the Southern Appalachian people has often been criticized, romanticized or derided, but rarely has it been understood. Yesterday's People, the fruit of many years' labor in the mountains, reveals the fears, anxieties, and hopes that underlie the mountaineers' way of thinking and acting, and thereby shape their relationships in family and community. First published in 1965, this book has been an indispensable guide for all who seek to study, work or live within the Appalachian culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Mr. Weller presents, with compassion and humor, one of the most incisive studies that has been made of an American folk community. It contains many quotable passages about social classes in America, and about Appalachia in particular." -- Publishers Weekly
