In the Shadow of Ragged Mountain
"In the Shadow of Ragged Mountain:|
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.
