"In the Shadow of Ragged Mountain:
Historical Archaeology of Nicholson, Corbin, & Weakley Hollows.

Newspaper articles and studies of the 1930s tended to stereotype as ˘hillbillies÷ the people who once lived in the hollows of the Blue Ridge Mountains in what is now Shenandoah National Park. Archaeologist Audrey Horning here presents a truer, more balanced story, based on actual evidence from her sources¨homesites in the three hollows, archival records, oral histories, and interviews with descendants. The book, featuring hundreds of people who lived in the hollows, has over 100 photographs of the past and present, a full index for easy reference, two genealogical charts, and a list of sources in the Endnotes. HorningĂs prose is compelling, even lively, as she brings the people of the hollows to life.

Winner of ""Book Award"" from the National Association for Interpretation(NAI) Media Competition, 2005.
